Queen Charlotte

Who was she?

Wikipedia:   Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz (19 May 1744 – 17 November 1818) was the queen-consort of the United Kingdom as wife of King George III. Queen Charlotte was a patroness of the arts, known to Johann Christian Bach and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, among others. She was also an amateur botanist who helped establish Kew Gardens. George III and Queen Charlotte had 15 children, 13 of whom survived to adulthood. 

Why was she in Bath?

She came to "take the waters" in November 1817, the year before her death. She stayed for about a month at 93, Sydney Place. The house at the far end of the terrace, 103, Sydney Place, was reserved for her entourage and also used by the Duke of Clarence.
