Product Information

Hester Davenport

On 14th June 1798, Fanny Burney, Keeper of the Robes to Queen Charlotte, shared the happiness of the Court at the return of King George III from a period of "madness", writing in her diary of her "joy amounting to extacy; I could not keep my eyes dry all day". For five years at Court, Burney was witness to the turbulent goings-on of the King's reign: the assassination attempt on the King, royal visits to the spa at Tunbridge Wells and elsewhere, the trial of Warren Hastings, and the King's "madness".
