Sophia Dorothea (1666–1726). Divorced wife of George I. Sophia Dorothea married her cousin George in 1682, but in 1694 was surprised in a rendezvous with her lover Count Königsmarck. He was never seen again, and she was divorced and honourably confined at the castle of Ahlden in Celle until her death. Her infidelity allowed the Jacobites to imply that George's children might not have been his own.
