Queen Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz Statue

UFR agent Mattt King recently deplaned at the Charlotte/Douglas International Airport (CTL). Outside the airport Mattt King would find this statue. The statue is that of Queen Charlotte Sophia of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, wife of King George III and namesake of both Mecklenburg County and the City of Charlotte.

Charlotte Sophia would be born in what is now Mirow, Germany in 1744. She would both meet and marry King George III on September 08, 1761.

The then princess would be 17, and George 24. Together the King and Queen would have six daughters and nine sons.

Two of those sons, George IV and William IV, would go on to rule as King of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and of Hanover.

Queen Charlotte's granddaughter would become Queen Victoria and her great-great-great-great granddaughter would become the current monarch of the United Kingdom and other Commonwealth realms, Queen Elizabeth II.

The 16 foot bronze statue would be created by Raymond Kaskey during the years 1988-90. Raymond Kaskey would also create the four statues at Independence Square in uptown Charlotte.

UFR agent Mattt King thinks that the statue is really that of one of our reptilian overlords.
