I just that George’s next wife is a good match for him and not some holy terror.
Your counts are off as right now is Christmas 1842 so an engagement in 1844 is absolutely possible and also likelyIt's either that or Mary Adelaide is widowed pretty sharpish and George marries her in the end.
If we're at Xmas 1843 now, and Child 4 is born in Late 1846, that still puts us at a March 1846 marriage at the latest, really. So a maximum of about 27 months for a meet cute and marriage and for Wife #2 to fall pregnant.
I can't see it being an 1844 marriage or engagement, so that means it'll be 1845 at the earliest unless George has an indiscretion and we get a royal shotgun wedding.
This is definitely true to some extent, it always helps me if a main character comes in with a reasonably clean slate - though obviously I try and find out as much as I can. For example, with George Cambridge I knew he was a bit of a lad when he was younger, a gambler and a womanizer. And based on his life in the OTL, it allowed me to make a George Cambridge for TTL who could help me change what I wanted to change but would still be plausible. So certainly in shopping for George V's new bride, I scoured the Gotha from top to toe but focused on the smaller courts which still had a fairly close connection to make the introduction easier.
Poor Drina! But then, William and Victoria were always going to clash when thrown together. Hopefully things will start to improve for her quite soon...I'm loving the contrast between Lottie and Drina, though I worry about how things will go for the latter...
Yes to both, though perhaps not in the same "coincidental" way as the OTL Queen Victoria did.Will George ever visit Austria or Italy?
I’m calling it. It is Alexander of Prussia’s cousin, Agnes of Anhalt-Dessau.
I also really liked the chapter.
I'm still leaning towards George and Helene of Orleans, given their close friendship and the fact she's protestant.
