The unruly queen : the life of Queen Caroline by Flora Fraser( Book )

39 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and held by 1,315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Biography of Princess Caroline of Brunswick, drawing on Royal Archives at Windsor Castle to detail her disastrous marriage to the Prince of Wales who was later to become King George IV, and discussing the scandalous behavior after her separation from her husband that led to her being tried for adultery in 1820
Princesses : the six daughters of George III by Flora Fraser( Book )

22 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 1,053 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Biographer Fraser takes us into the heart of the British royal family during the tumultuous period of the American and French revolutions and beyond, illuminating the complicated lives of these exceptional women: Charlotte, Princess Royal, the eldest, constantly at odds with her mother; home-loving, family-minded Augusta; plump Elizabeth, a gifted amateur artist; Mary, the bland beauty of the family; Sophia, emotional and prone to take refuge in illness; and Amelia, "turbulent and tempestuous." Weaving together letters and historical accounts, Fraser re-creates their world in all its frustrations and excitements. The six sisters, though accomplished and extremely well educated, were kept from marrying by George III, and Fraser describes how they remained subject to their father while he teetered on the brink of mental collapse. The King may have believed that his six daughters were happily celibate at Windsor, but secretly, Fraser shows, they enjoyed startling freedom.--From publisher description
Emma, Lady Hamilton by Flora Fraser( Book )

11 editions published between 1986 and 1988 in English and Undetermined and held by 966 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This fine biography marks the advent of yet another member of a remarkable literary family, for Flora Fraser is the daughter of Antonia Fraser and the granddaughter of Elizabeth Longford. She shows all of the family's considerable talent in covering the sometimes glad, sometimes sad career of the woman who insured her place in history as the mistress of Lord Nelson. Married to Lord Hamilton, who was three and a half decades older, she openly shared her favors with Nelson under the same roof and thereby outraged English society. Yet all hailed her as a rare beauty, and as this portrait makes clear, she was also a woman of wit, grace, and spirit. This highly readable work becomes the standard life. Recommended.

Pauline Bonaparte : Venus of Empire by Flora Fraser( Book )

7 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 644 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From acclaimed biographer Flora Fraser, the brilliant life of Napoleon's favorite sister. Celebrated for her looks, notorious for her passions, immortalized by Antonio Canova's statue, and always deeply loyal to her brother, Pauline Bonaparte Borghese is a fascinating figure in her own right. At the turn of the nineteenth century, she was considered by many to be the most beautiful woman in Europe. She shocked the continent with the boldness of her love affairs, her opulent wardrobe and jewels, and, most famously, her decision to pose nearly nude for Canova's sculpture. But just as remarkable as Pauline's private life was her fidelity to the emperor (if not to her husbands). No biographer has gone so deeply into the sources or so closely examined one of the seminal relationships of the man who shaped modern Europe. Fraser has cast new light on the Napoleonic era while crafting a dynamic portrait of a mesmerizing woman.--From publisher description
Beloved Emma : the life of Emma Lady Hamilton by Flora Fraser( Book )

"Eighteenth-century adventuress Emma Hamilton was a woman ahead of her time. Her rise to fame and fortune seemed unstoppable - until she began her famous, doomed love affair with Admiral Lord Nelson. Beloved Emma traces Emma Hamilton's journey from Liverpool to London and life as an artist's model, through glittering success in Naples as the wife of Sir William Hamilton, and that legendary romance with Nelson, to her painful descent from the heights of fame to an early death in Calais. Flora Fraser captures the energy, purpose and sexuality that drove this woman through her tumultuous life."--Jacket
Love in a cold climate, a novel by Nancy Mitford( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Polly Hampton has long been groomed for the perfect marriage by her mother, the fearsome and ambitious Lady Montdore. But Polly, with her stunning good looks and impeccable connections, is bored by the monotony of her glittering debut season in London. Having just come from India, where her father served as Viceroy, she claims to have hoped that society in a colder climate would be less obsessed with love affairs. The apparently aloof and indifferent Polly has a long-held secret, however, one that leads to the shattering of her mother's dreams and her own disinheritance. When an elderly duke begins pursuing the disgraced Polly and a callow potential heir curries favor with her parents, nothing goes as expected, but in the end all find happiness in their own unconventional ways."--Page 4 of cover

George and Martha Washington : a revolutionary marriage by Flora Fraser( Book )

8 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

George and Martha Washington, of Mount Vernon, Virginia, were America's original first couple. From the 1750s, when young soldier George wooed and wedded Martha Dandridge Custis, a pretty and rich young widow, to the forging of a new nation, Flora Fraser traces the development, both personal and political, of an historic marriage. The private sphere - their love of home and country, the two children Martha brings to this union from a previous marriage, and the confidence she instilled in her beloved second spouse - forms the backdrop to an increasingly public partnership. Fraser brings George and Martha Washington to life afresh: he, a man who aspired to greatness; and she, a woman who, when tested, proved an ideal spouse to commander and president alike
