King George II and Queen Caroline were the parents of nine children, seven of whom survived infancy. The children include Frederick, Prince of Wales, who was despised by his parents, William Augustus, Duke of Cumberland, the victor at Culloden, and Louisa, Queen of Denmark. In this Day School we will consider the lives of the King and Queen, their children and grandchildren. We will also see how this family were to be the ancestors of many of the crowned heads of Europe.
