On November 7, 1768, "Charlotte Town" was incorporated. Even though the residents disagreed with British laws, they hoped to win favor with King George III by naming the town for his wife Queen Charlotte. Queen Charlotte is the great-great-great-great grandmother of Queen Elizabeth II, Britain's current monarch.
