‘Invisible Queen’ Charlotte, First Mixed-Race Woman In British Royal Family
“Invisible Queen,” a book written by Dr. Stephanie E. Myers, published by R.J. Myers Publishing Company, a minority-owned small business in Washington, D.C., is being promoted. “Invisible Queen” tells the story of Queen Sophia Charlotte, a mixed-race woman born in Germany, who married King George III in 1761, and served as Queen of England and Ireland, for 57 years. “Many of us don’t know that a Queen of England had Black Heritage and was an accomplished woman.
Queen Charlotte was a botanist; a musician; spoke four (4) languages; opposed the Atlantic Slave Trade; supported the Abolitionist Movement in America; birthed 15 children; and supported her husband’s reign as King of England and Ireland,” says author Dr. Myers. She continues, “Queen Charlotte’s story inspires young women and young men of all backgrounds and nationalities, to strive to achieve great things.” Roy J. Myers, President, R.J. Myers Publishing Company said, “Queen Charlotte, the “Invisible Queen” has been hidden in plain sight. We are proud to bring a story about her life and contributions to world history, into plain view.”
This book about Queen Charlotte is timely given the upcoming nuptials of Prince Harry, grandson of Queen Elizabeth of England, to actress Meghan Markle, a mixed-race American actress. Noted Journalist Barbara Reynolds, author of the biography of Coretta Scott King “My Life, My Love, My Legacy,” stated, “Thanks to the brilliant scholarship and research of Dr. Stephanie E. Myers, Queen Charlotte, the wife of King George III, who was a botanist, an early patron of Mozart, and who entertained world leaders at her Court, including U.S. President Thomas Jefferson, has now been un-earthed. Historic records support Myers conclusion that Queen Charlotte is worthy of the greatest honor for her contributions to supporting Abolitionists who ended slavery.” Mrs. Frank “Mitzi” Perdue said, “Invisible Queen is a phenomenally enjoyable and inspirational read…this book is about one of the most important women in the 18th Century, a mixed-race woman who was Queen of England for 57 years and during that time had virtues and accomplishments that can inspire us all.”
