"Memoirs of Mrs. Fitzherbert" by Charles Langdale, published in London in 1856, is a notable work that
delves into the life and experiences of Maria Fitzherbert. Maria Anne Fitzherbert was a prominent figure in
British history, known for her connection to King George IV. The book sheds light on the fascinating and
controversial relationship between Maria Fitzherbert and the future King George IV, exploring the
complexities of their clandestine marriage. Charles Langdale, the author, provides insights into the
political and social landscape of the late 18th and early 19th centuries, offering a glimpse into the
challenges and intrigues faced by Maria Fitzherbert as the secret wife of a future monarch. The narrative
likely unfolds through a combination of historical documentation, personal letters, and Langdale's own
commentary, creating a vivid portrayal of the events and characters involved.
This rare book is not only a historical account but also a window into the personal life of Mrs. Fitzherbert,
capturing the spirit of the times and the intricacies of her relationship with the Prince of Wales. The
memoirs provide readers with a deeper understanding of the societal norms, political pressures, and
personal sacrifices that characterized this unique chapter in British history. VERY GOOD. Item #579
