ADELAIDE OF SAXE-MEININGEN (QUEEN CONSORT OF THE UNITED KINGDOM AND OF HANOVER)The wife of William IV signs this envelope fragment addressed to a man in Windsor Autograph Envelope Unsigned, 4x2½ affixed to 4½x7¼ sheet also containing a 1¾x3 biographical clipping about the queen consort of William IV. Writing on envelope fragment is difficult to decipher, but it appears to be addressed to a man in Windsor. Amelia Adelaide Louisa Theresa Caroline(1792-1849) was the wife of William IV, who was crowned King of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland following the death of his brother, George IV, in 1830. Although unpopular among reformers, it remains unclear to what extent she attempted to influence her husband politically. Interestingly, the capital city of South Australia, Adelaide, is named after her. Heavily toned. Stained and worn throughout. Corners clipped. Ink note from a previous collector written on sheet to which envelope clipping is affixed. Otherwise, fine condition.
