Sophia of Hanover – From Winter Princess to Heiress of Great Britain, 1630 – 1714

J.N. Duggan

Sophia, Electress of Hanover (1630 1714), grand-daughter of James I and mother of George I, is best remembered as the link between the Houses of Stuart and Hanover. But, above all, she was a gifted and prolific chronicler and her detailed memoirs and letters give us an insider s view of life for the top echelons of society in the 16th century. A true European, Sophia spoke English, French, German, Dutch and Italian fluently, she was open minded and intellectually curious. Her writings cover an astonishing variety of subjects: religion, philosphy, international gossip, household hints, poltics and the details of her family life. J.N. Duggan has translated Sophia’s memoir and thousands of letters to paint a remarkable portrait of a woman who deserves to be known by modern-day Europeans.
