Today I made an interesting little discovery I thought I would share…
A while back I did a series of posts on this blog about the private lives of the King Georges, which also included the “un-George” Frederick, Prince of Wales , son of George II and father of George III who died before he could inherit the British throne.
As portrayed in my novel FORTUNE’S SON, Frederick was a great philanderer and had a number of mistresses. He was also a close friend of Charles Calvert, fifth Baron Baltimore and was godfather to Baltimore’s son and heir, also named Frederick.
Today I was reading about Frederick 6th Lord Baltimore (an even more infamous 18th century philanderer) and came across a portrait of him as a young man. I was immediately struck by how much he seems to resemble NOT his father, but Frederick Prince of Wales.
Makes one wonder…

The entire salacious history of Frederick Calvert will be included in my upcoming novel THE DEVIL YOU KNOW by Victoria Vane
