Death of Princess Charlotte, 1817.

Obsequies for Princess Charlotte, 1817, Silver Medal by T Halliday, bust right, H. R. H. THE PRINCESS CHARLOTTE, rev IN MEMORY OF HER OBSEQUIES AT WNDSOR NOVR. 19 1817, within palm wreath, 22mm (BHM 950). Rare, deeply toned extremely fine.

The public saw Charlotte as the nation's future hope. Destined to inherit the throne if she had lived, she was neither mad like her grandfather nor unpopular like her father. After her untimely death, however, due to complications during childbirth, the nation mourned its loss. For the next 18 years there was uncertainty in the monarchy as George III's eldest sons each died without legitimate issue, until 1837 when another princess attained the throne, a future empress, Victoria.
