Caroline of Brandenburg-Ansbach was the Queen consort of King George II of Great Britain. As a young woman, Caroline was much sought-after as a bride. Rejecting the nominal King of Spain, Archduke Charles of Austria, she married George Augustus, third-in-line to the British throne. Caroline moved to Britain in 1714 when her husband became Prince of Wales. As Princess of Wales, she joined her husband in rallying political opposition to his father George I.
