In 1795, George the Prince of Wales married his cousin Caroline of Brunswick. It was an arranged marriage, and the two never warmed towards one another. They had one daughter together who sadly died before she could accede the throne, which meant that George IV’s brother William became his heir.
This commemorative bronze medal celebrates the marriage between George the Prince of Wales and Caroline of Brunswick and was designed by C. H. Kuchler. The obverse features busts of the newlyweds. The reverse features a design of the winged figure Hymen standing before the city of London, holding the two Royal Arms of the Duchy of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel in one hand and a torch in the other hand. The medal is in Extremely Fine condition.
