QUEEN CHARLOTTE

Current age of actor: 49

There was actually a Queen Charlotte, married to King George III. She was married to him from 1761 until his death in 1818. During the events of the first season, which takes place in 1813, she would have been 69 years old.

Golda Rosheuvel, who plays Queen Charlotte, is considerably younger at 49, so it’s likely the producers decided to make her character younger for the series.
