The “Queen City”
This nickname and name of the city come from the same source. The source is traced back to Queen Charlotte Sophia of Mecklenburg-Stretliz in Germany. The city of Charlotte was founded back in 1768 when a group called the loyalists settled there when King George III still ruled the Colonies. Since it was such a large group of people they needed to make a courthouse and appoint a name to this newly founded city. These men decided to name the city “Charlotte Town” to gain the King’s affection so they could keep getting benefits from him. The chose the name Charlotte to honor the King’s new wife, Queen Charlotte Sophia of Mecklenburg-Stretliz
