Famous people named Charlotte
Charlotte Stuart, Duchess of Albany, Royalty: The illegitimate daughter of the Jacobite pretender Prince Charles Edward Stuart and his only child to survive infancy. Her mother was Clementina Walkinshaw, who was mistress to the Prince from 1752 until 1760. After years of abuse, Clementina left him, taking Charlotte. Charlotte spent most of her life in French convents; estranged from a father who refused to make any provision for her. Unable to marry, she herself became a mistress with illegitimate children taking the Archbishop of Bordeaux as her lover. She was finally reconciled to her father in 1784, when he legitimised her and created her Duchess of Albany. She left her own children with her mother, and became her father's carer and companion in the last years of his life, before dying less than two years after him. Her three children were raised in anonymity; however, as the only grandchildren of the pretender, they have been the subject of Jacobite interest since their lineage was uncovered in the 20th century.
Charlotte, Princess Royal, Royalty: A member of the British Royal Family, the eldest daughter of George III. She was later the Queen consort of Frederick of W├╝rttemberg. Charlotte was the third holder of the title Princess Royal.
