Queen of William IV and eldest daughter of George, Duke of Saxe-Coburg Meiningen. The untimely death of Princess Charlotte, the daughter of George, Prince Regent, in 1817 prompted the unmarried sons of George III to find brides in order to beget legitimate heirs to throne. Adelaide and William, Duke of Clarence married in 1818. She became queen on his accession to the throne in 1830. She was unpopular for her supposed interference in politics during the agitation for reform.
