Royal Love and Duty
Wiping her nose with her ornately embroidered handkerchief, Caroline Matilda sat back in her chair, still holding the coin. Sitting in her stateroom, aboard a ship bound for Denmark, surrounded by her ladies-in-waiting, she is overcome with fear. She has been given in marriage to King Christian VII of Denmark. Being of noble birth, she knows this is her one true duty. But what of love? As she once again glances down to the coin caste to commemorate her soon-to-be-husband, she sends a silent plea to God to place favor upon her marriage.
