It was necessary for the Prince of Wales to marry and the choice fell on Caroline of Brunswick. Caroline wanted to marry a Major in her father's army and her unpredictable behaviour had already reslted in scandals about her private life. Arriving in England she found her bridegroom's mistres waiting to undermine her position and to spy on her, the Prince determined to hate her, and her new family, with the exception of the hafl-crazy King, hostile to her. Caroline had her own eccentric way of dealing with the situation. She became involved in the Douglas Scandal and the 'Delicate Investigation'; but this seemed mild when compared witht eh life she lived roaming the Continent in search of adventures which culminated in one of the most famous cases in history when a Queen of England stood on trial charged with adultery.
