Duchess of Mecklenburg-Strelitz Charlotte (circa 1800)

Biography

Duchess of Mecklenburg-Strelitz by birth and a Duchess of Saxe-Hildburghausen through her marriage to Friedrich, Duke of Saxe-Hildburghausen (later Duke of Saxe-Altenburg).

Charlotte Georgine was the eldest child and daughter of Karl II, Grand Duke of Mecklenburg and his first wife Princess Friederike of Hesse-Darmstadt.

Charlotte and her sisters, Queen Louise of Prussia, Queen Frederica of Hannover and Princess Therese of Thurn und Taxis, were considered the most beautiful women of their time.

On 3 September 1785, at the age of fifteen, Charlotte married Duke Friedrich. The marriage was not a happy one. They had twelve children.

Charlotte was interested in literature and avidly promoted the arts at court. She relaxed the rules and etiquette and brought musicians, painters, and poets to the court, among them the writer Jean Paul Friedrich Richter.

Charlotte died in Hildburghausen, Duchy of Saxe-Hildburghausen, aged 48, on 14 May 1818 after a long illness.
