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.

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...
