Item # 651994 THE GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE, London, England, November, 1818
* The death of Queen Charlotte of England
* 1st black royal (?)
The first 3 pages report on the death of the beloved Queen Charlotte of England. Considerable details regarding her life and lineage are provided. The pages are black-bordered with mourning rules. See images for details.
Reports from throughout the world are found throughout.
Although some of the pages are close-trimmed at the bottom, there is no loss of text, and the issue is overall in very good condition.
Note: Although never formally recognized as such, it is believed that Queen Charlotte, like Meghan Markle - the now-titled Duchess of Sussex, was also of mixed-race African descent, making her (unofficially) the first black royal.
