*** J.N. Duggan - Sophia of Hanover

Sophia, Electress of Hanover (1630 1714), great-granddaughter of Prince William I of Orange, grand-daughter of King James I and mother of King George I of England, is best remembered as the link between the Houses of Stuart and Hanover. But, above all, she was a gifted and prolific chronicler and her detailed memoirs and letters give us an insider's view of life for the top echelons of society in the 16th century. A true European, Sophia spoke English, French, German, Dutch and Italian fluently, she was open minded and intellectually curious. Her writings cover an astonishing variety of subjects: religion, philosphy, international gossip, household hints, politics and the details of her family life. Josephine Duggan has translated Sophia's memoir and thousands of letters to paint a portrait of a remarkable woman, related to many of the Royal Houses of Western Europe, in this enjoyable book.The author J.N. Duggan was born in Sheffield but raised in Ireland where she completed a BSc at University College Dublin. She returned to Sheffield to train as a nurse and work in a hospital laboratory. She now lives in Galway and is working on a biography of Count John Axel Fersen, friend of Queen Marie Antoinette of France.
