Book Description: This two-volume Autobiography by Cornelia Knight (1757-1837) was published in 1861. It was complied by the military historian Sir John Kaye from her journals and a memoir based on them, written late in life and remaining incomplete at her death. Cornelia Knight, the daughter of an admiral, was highly educated: she knew ten languages, was skilled at painting and drawing, and published novels and poetry. In 1813 she was appointed to the household of Princess Charlotte of Wales. In 1814, the Prince Regent dismissed all his daughter's attendants, and Knight returned to a life of literature and European travel. In Volume 2, Knight continues her account of her dismissal, and a later meeting with the Princess, now happily married (though she was shortly to die in childbirth). Knight spent another twenty years in the court circles of Europe: an appendix gives further extracts from her journals and her 'anecdote book'.

Book Description: Ellis Cornelia Knight (1757-1837) was an English gentlewoman, traveller, landscape artist and writer of novels, verse, journals and history. She had the acquaintance of many prominent figures in her lifetime from members of the circle of Samuel Johnson and Sir Joshua Reynolds in her girlhood, Nelson and Lady Emma Hamilton during her Italian sojourn, and members of the British Royal Family during her service to Queen Charlotte and Princess Charlotte Augusta of Wales. She corresponded with or met many other writers including Fanny Burney, Madame de Stael and Lady Charlotte Bury. Her reputation as a learned author and highly respectable character earned her an invitation to join the household of Queen Charlotte in 1805 and in 1812 she became companion to Princess Charlotte, only daughter of the Prince Regent (later George IV), holding this post until the Regent fired her in 1814 for imagined lapses of judgment. At her death she left behind an incomplete autobiography and a journal which were invaluable sources of information on the court history of those days. These were edited and published posthumously in two volumes in 1861. Volume 1 of 2.
