Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Charlotte Dacre (1782-1841) was an English author of Gothic novels.Most references to her today are under the name Charlotte Dacre, but she first wrote under the pseudonym Rosa Matilda, and later adopted a second pseudonym to tease and confuse her critics. Charlotte Dacre was born Charlotte King, and later became Mrs Byrne upon her marriage to Nicholas Byrne in 1806. She was the daughter of John King, born Jacob Rey (c.1753-1824), a moneylender and radical writer well known in London society. Her father divorced her mother, Sara, n e Lara, under Jewish law in 1784 before setting up home with the dowager countess of Lanesborough. After the death of his wife, Charlotte Dacre married Nicholas Byrne, with whom she already had three children. He was an editor and future partner of London's The Morning Post newspaper where the author Mary Robinson (poet) was the poetry editor and an influence on a young Charlotte Dacre who began her writing career by contributing poems to the Morning Post under the pseudonym "Rosa Matilda."show more
