Queen Charlotte

Friederike Drinkuth, curator of several historic German castles, will speak about Queen Charlotte of Mecklenburgh-Strelitz at 11 a.m., Wednesday, Oct. 12, in the College of Health and Human Services, Room 128.

Drinkuth’s research focuses on female art and culture found in European Courts. Mirow Caste, where Queen Charlotte once lived, is among the historic sites that Drinkuth curates. Queen Charlotte was married to George III, the king of England at the time of Charlotte’s founding. The city of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County are named in her honor.
