It has been reported that Sir Allan Ramsey was responsible for most of Queen Charlotte’s paintings and his representations of her were very African. Ramsay was an anti-slavery intellectual of his day. Queen Charlotte was directly descended from Margarita de Castro y Sousa, a black branch of the Portuguese Royal House. Baron Stockmar, the Queen’s personal physician described her as having ”a true mulatto face.” Queen Charlotte was the wife of King George III (1738-1820). They had 15 children. Also, at the time of Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation the Royal Household, referred to both Asian and African bloodlines.
