The first, under the general head of The Betrothal, is illustrative of the early life of Sophia Dorothea to the abrupt termination of her engagement to the Crown Prince of Wolfenbiittel, in favour of the Crown Prince of Hanover. It embodies many interesting particulars respecting her mothers early history, which it is obvious the writer could only have received from the Duchess of Zelle. The second period, The Marriage, is much more the result of her own recollections, and illustrates that portion of her unhappy life passed by the Princess as the wife of the Crown Prince of Hanover, under his roof- and, the third period, The Imprisonment, narrates the intrigues of her enemies to effect her ruin, ending with her prolonged incarceration in the Castle of Ahlden, after an illegal sentence of divorce from her husband.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
