On what historical basis has Queen Charlotte been assumed to be Black, and how much do historians credit them? While many historians have dismissed these claims outright, others say she lived so long ago that it is very difficult to conclusively prove or disprove vague claims about her ancestry.
Queen Charlotte founded Kew Gardens in London and was a great patron of music. Margarita de Castro e Souza, whom Cocom says Queen Charlotte was descended from, was a 15th-century noblewoman. Her African ancestry is sought to be established by linking her to Madragana, a possibly African she is described as a Moor lover of the century Portugal ruler Alfonso III.
The poem written on her coronation, as Time magazine points out, is confusing — while Numidia was indeed a North African kingdom, the Vandals were originally Germanic.
To people at the time, her religion, elite status, whether she blended in culturally, these would have mattered more than ancestry going back several centuries. However, people were conscious of differences in skin colour, and had they considered her appearance African, I think it would have found mention in the cartoons and caricatures of the Royals that were common in those times, which it does not.
The Bridgerton series was based on novels by American author Julia Quinn, whose books did not include a reference on Charlotte or her ancestry.
