    Born as daugh­ter of Fer­di­nand Al­bert II, Duke of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel and An­toinette of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel, she held the rank of a Duchess of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel with the style Princess. Ju­liana Maria was given the sim­ple but very strict up­bring­ing usual at many of the smaller princely Ger­man courts. As a child, she ap­pears to have stut­tered. She mar­ried King Fred­er­ick V of Den­mark at Fred­eriks­borg Palace on 8 July 1752, just over six months after the death of his first wife Louise of Great Britain, and was crowned the same day. The mar­riage was arranged by Count Moltke, who thought it best that the king re­mar­ried as soon as pos­si­ble, in an at­tempt of sta­bi­liz­ing his be­hav­ior. The king was ini­tially un­will­ing to re­marry, un­less it was with an Eng­lish princess, none of whom were avail­able at the time. How­ever, he was con­vinced after see­ing her por­trait and hav­ing made some in­ves­ti­ga­tion about her.

    Ju­liana Maria was per­son­ally de­scribed as good-look­ing and sen­si­ble, but the mar­riage was not pop­u­lar in Den­mark, where it was con­sid­ered to have taken place too soon after the death of her pre­de­ces­sor, the pop­u­lar for­mer queen Louise, and it was a dif­fi­cult task for her to re­place her pop­u­lar pre­de­ces­sor. She had sev­eral stepchil­dren by mar­riage, but she was given no in­flu­ence over their up­bring­ing. She did her best to ac­cus­tom her­self to Den­mark and make her­self pop­u­lar as queen, and al­though she never fully mas­tered the Dan­ish lan­guage, she fre­quently used it both by speak­ing and writ­ing it. She also had two Danes in suc­ces­sion, J. Schielderup Snee­dorff and Guld­berg, ap­pointed gov­er­nors re­spon­si­ble for the tute­lage of her son, Hered­i­tary Prince Fred­er­ick, who was thereby given the Dan­ish lan­guage as his mother tongue. De­spite these ef­forts, she never man­aged to make her­self a pop­u­lar queen. De­spite the con­st...

    Her step­son, Chris­t­ian VII, treated her at­tempts to con­nect with him with cold­ness, and his con­sort Car­o­line Mathilde did not like her. Con­se­quently, she was hardly ever in­vited to the royal table, nor was she vis­ited very often by the king and queen. In 1768, she par­tic­i­pated in the ban­ish­ment of Chris­t­ian's mis­tress Støvlet-Cathrine, who was be­lieved to have in­flu­ence over the king. In 1770, the new king, her step­son King Chris­t­ian VII of Den­mark, had be­come in­sane and the power had fallen in the hands of his con­sort Car­o­line Matilda of Great Britain and her lover Jo­hann Friedrich Stru­ensee. They had lib­eral po­lit­i­cal views and is­sued a se­ries of de­mo­c­ra­tic laws that raised the op­po­si­tion to the no­bil­ity. Ju­liane Marie be­came the cen­tre of the op­po­si­tion, and she be­longed to the group par­tic­i­pat­ing in the coup d'état that brought down the gov­ern­ment of Stru­ensee by ex­pos­ing his af­fair with the queen. She arranged f...

    Ju­liana Maria is an im­por­tant char­ac­ter in Norah Lofts' his­tor­i­cal novel The Lost Queen(1969), chron­i­cling the tragic mar­riage of King Chris­t­ian VII and Queen Car­o­line Matilda. The book por­trays her in a highly neg­a­tive way.
