"Drawing on Fanny Burney's letters and journals of the time, Davenport explores the events of King George III's court, and Burney's place within it. She became Keeper of the Robes to Queen Charlotte in 1786 and was witness to many dramas, such as the assassination attempt on the King in the same year. During her time at the court she records the King's 'madness' and recovery, alongside other events ... Her vivid depiction of her time spent at court illustrates her position as a pioneering woman writer and a valuable social commentator."--Cover.
