even after the disaster of this marriage it took the royals another (approximately) 200 years to realize a lesson that most people have known all along-let your children marry for love! well at least they got it by now

Well Tsar Nicholas and Alexandra married for love and look how that ended up.
Edward II and George V married women who were suggested to them as good matches and those marriages were relatively happy if not full on happy. Prince Andrew and Sarah married for love and it didn't work out well either.

although Andrew and Fergie didn't work out, at least they got to meet and choose each other initially.
Tsar Nicholas was a tragedy that resulted from his relationship with his country, not his wife

The tragedy that occurred in Russia had many factors one of them being Alexandra. The point I was trying to make is that just because two royals are told to marry simply because they are royal does not mean that a disaster is going to ensue. George's parents are another example of a happy couple who came about through negotiations and not love. Andrew and Sarah came together out of love and they were another disaster of the 80s marriages, so marrying for love doesn't mean that happily ever after is going to happen.
BTW I did not mean Edward II, I meant Edward VII and marrying Queen Alexandra.
As to the problems with Caroline, I blame George more than anybody else; so you didn't like her, who the heck cares just do your job and move on. The picture of Caroline on wikipedia is very surprising, I will not say she is drop dead gorgeous, but she is definitely not ugly. How many German princesses came over to England to marry a member of the royal family, only to end up being called ugly and stinky by the English?

Can we get off the marriage of George and Caroline and talk about George himself. I know his father saw him as a disappointment, but how did the Prince feel and treat his father during his illnesses? Also did George ever become a worthy king?
