Charlotte, North Carolina

Charlotte, North Carolina, the largest city in the state, is nicknamed ‘Queen City’, in honor of its namesake Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz (1744–1818). The Queen consort of British King George III (1738–1820), Charlotte was also the electress consort of Hanover in the Holy Roman Empire until the promotion of her husband to King of Hanover in October 1814, which made her Queen consort of Hanover. Queen Charlotte was a respected patroness of the arts, and a noted supporter of Johann Christian Bach and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, among others. An amateur botanist, Queen Charlotte is also acknowledged for helping to expand England's Kew Gardens.
