Tomorrow will be better 2. The Queen

"The Queen" is the second volume in Karoline Stjernfelt's dramatic trilogy about Queen Caroline Mathilde, King Christian VII and his personal physician Johann Friedrich Struensee. Christian VII is more lost than ever when Struensee is called in as the king’s new personal physician to soothe the royal nerves. But Struensee's medical council rapidly expands beyond the health of the royal family, which may not be the kingdom's biggest problem. Struensee becomes the confidant of both the king and the queen, but as Denmark's future brightens, Caroline experiences a tantalising sensation and dangerous feelings.

It’s a tale of loneliness, infatuation and power told from the innermost royal chambers. A real piece of Danish history unfolds in Karoline Stjernfelt’s refreshing and beautiful visual universe.
