Abstract

Karoline of Hessen-Darmstadt exemplifies the problems in writing the biography of a royal or high aristocratic consort in eighteenth-century Germany. Such a biography can only succeed if it deploys feminist historiography; takes seriously the correspondence of the consort as a historiographical source, and also takes seriously marriage politics as an important aspect of foreign politics.
