From the much-celebrated author of the satirical novel Evelina (1778), this volume is the collected journals and private correspondence of Fanny Burney, Queen Charlotte’s Keeper of the Robes.
First published posthumously in seven volumes between 1842–1846, this work is comprised of epistolary correspondence and diary excerpts written by Fanny Burney and edited by her niece, Mrs. Barrett. Fanny Burney, also known by her nom de plume, Madame D’Arblay, accepted the post of Keeper of the Robes for the queen consort of King George III in 1786, going on to develop a close friendship with Queen Charlotte and her daughters.
