    1. A very interesting work on the relationship between George I and his mistress, Melusine von Schulenburg, and the succession of George to the throne of Great Britain in 1714. I only knew faint snippets of the story, and found the story of George's disgraced and discarded wife, Sophia Dorothea to be the stuff of tragedy. All sorts of interesting details about royal life at the time, the way illegitimate children were handled, and the shadowy world of the mistress. Four stars overall, and recommend [...]


    2. It can sometimes be hard to rate non-fiction works read purely for research purposes. Firstly, I’m not a historian, but I did find this book a little frustrating at times when certain assertions were made, which contradicted other biographies or notes I’ve read on the subject of Georg Ludwig’s earlier life and relationship with his wife Sophia Dorothea and his family. Some of these papers are listed in the bibliography section of this work.Although I concede the biography is about Ehrengar [...]


    3. Kings Mistress By Claudia Gold4.45 out of 5 a very good book full of information.I do not usually read factual books, I have read one or two but I really enjoyed this one.A complete history of the live of King George 1 mistress and her influence over the private life and political life of the Hanoverians and English of this period.I got a little tangled with the different subjects taking the time period back again going over information again. But I really enjoyed the book and found the life and [...]



    4. Had never heard of Melusine, and you don't really learn that much about her from this book, but it is still a fascinating and scandalous read that I really enjoyed and would recommend/.


    5. This book was a historical non-fiction of King George I, Britain's first Georgian King and his mistress, Melusine (later known as Duchess of Kendal) who exerted influence on political decisions during his time in power.This book was absolutely informative as the author has also described the political structure as well as the role of women in the 1700s but the tone used was rather monotonous and boring. I felt that I was reading another plain history textbook where a more interesting tone would [...]


    6. . It's a gigantic wall of text. The author just seems to let it pour out of her head and you find odd parts where one whole chapter is summed up in a paragraph a few chapters before it. I really wanted to like this book and it could have been great but it absolutely desperately needed a editor who could make sense of it all and put it in some sort of order. It is also utterly humourless, would have been a 3 but for that.
