A fine and rare proof engraving of the House of Lords interior. The scene relates to the time when Caroline Brunswick, estranged wife of King George IV was brought before the House of Lords following her husband’s accession to the Throne. The Pains and Penalties Bill 1820 was introduced in Parliament in order to strip Caroline of the title of Queen and dissolve her marriage to the King on the grounds that Caroline had been involved with a man called Bartolomeo Bergami, (“a foreigner of low station”) in a most degrading intimacy. Engraved by MURRAY, John, George.
