Editor says, in reality Charlotte died in child birth aged twenty-one. Please note that we have repurposed content from both Wikipedia and also the Hub Pages discussion group which concludes ~ The death of Princess Charlotte of Wales changed the world. The immediate consequence of this was that there was no heir in the next generation for the british throne. The brothers of the Prince Regent, who were largely unmarried, straight away started scouring Europe for suitable princesses to marry in order to secure the succession. The only one to actually father a child that lived to adulthood was the Duke of Kent. That child became Queen Victoria. She married Prince Albert Of Saxe Coburg Gotha, the nephew of Leopold, and they had nine children. Here is where it starts to become interesting for students of world history. Their eldest daughter married Prince Frederick of Prussia, and had a son who went on to become Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany, whose expansionist belligerant policies are largely blamed for the first world war.
