'Away with her, and waft her hence ---', c1820. Satirical cartoon with a quote from Shakespeare's "Henry VI, Part III", showing Queen Caroline being offered a bribe of £50,000 per annum to leave, thus saving her adulterous husband the Prince Regent (future King George IV) the embarrassment of her existence. From an album containing portraits and satirical caricatures related to the trial of Queen Caroline (1768-1821, also known as Caroline of Brunswick, consort of King George IV) in 1820.
