Augusta of Cambridge vs. Princess Augusta Sophia of the United Kingdom[edit]

Astrotrain and myself are debating which of Augusta of Cambridge (born 1820) and Princess Augusta Sophia of the United Kingdom (died 1840) is more likely to have been a patron of the L.Bertolotto flea circus on Regent Street.

The evidence is a flyer stating patronage of "The Princess Augusta"

Dating information based on news papers and printers addresses indicates that the show was run in the 1830s.

The flyer says "The Princess Augusta" which is only used by daughters of the King (Augusta of Cambridge was a granddaughter and would be listed as Princess Augusta of Cambridge);

Augusta of Cambridge she spent most of her life in Germany

So the current speculation is that it is more likely to be her aunt to whom the flyer is refered. See Princess Augusta Sophia of the United Kingdom. —Preceding unsigned comment added by FleaCircusDirector (talkcontribs)

What about the rest of her life?[edit]

The article jumps suddenly from the question of marriage to the end of her life. Did she marry? If so, whom? If not, why not? Did she do anything during that time? Jedikaiti (talk) 22:30, 26 May 2010 (UTC)

Yes, definitely a big gap, but I don't know any of the details. Astronaut (talk) 20:19, 27 February 2011 (UTC)
