Bridgerton is a Netflix series.
We see the social season in London in 1813.
Debutantes are presented to Queen Charlotte.
Queen Charlotte was a German princess.
She was married to King George III and became the Queen of Great Britain and Ireland.
Queen Charlotte is Queen Victoria’s grandmother and Queen Elizabeth II’s great-great-great-great grandmother.
Some think that Charlotte’s distant ancestors were
a Portuguese monarch
and his north African lover, Madragana.
Some think that it is not true.
But in Bridgerton Queen Charlotte is black.
What did Queen Charlotte look like?
Here is a portrait by Thomas Gainsborough, 1781:
