Wonderland Look-Alikes: Some of The People Lewis Carroll Got Wrong

Author Frank Beddor
Princess Alyss Heart’s history was a bloody tale, full of power and terror and even a glowing glimmer of hope. When Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (a.k.a. Lewis Carroll) heard the harrowing story, he was full of good intentions. The writer did his best, crafting a story of whimsy that amused children and adults alike—however, they did not amuse Alice Liddell.

How galling then, that Leopold set his heart on a former foundling named Alice Liddell, a member of the gentry, modestly famous for being Lewis Carroll’s muse. What was worse: Miss Liddell had progressive ideas on social and economic reform, and she didn’t care to abide a woman’s place in society. Victoria would have to be subtle, nuanced in her sabotaging of Leopold and Alice’s relationship...
