150 claimants to the throne of Great Britain

description below

Letterpress text discussing the line of succession above an etched genealogical chart, which illustrates the line of succession, following the reign of George IV, probably published in response to the death of Princess Charlotte in 1817 and before the birth of Victoria in 1819. However, the text also references “the present Princess of Wales”, but further evidence that this was issued in response to her death is the dark black border around her name.
Imprint etched at top of chart. Date from letterpress: “The following is a brief sketch. A.D. 1818.”


  • Title: 150 claimants to the throne of Great Britain.
  • Publication: [London] : Printed & publish’d by W. Finch, No. 5 Charlotte Place, New Cut, Lower Marsh, Lambeth, [ca. 1818]
