Princess Amelia was the youngest of the fifteen children of George III and Queen Charlotte. She died at the age of 27 after a long period of illness, precipitating her father's descent into insanity.

This ring is part of a set of 52, commissioned by her brother the Prince Regent, later George IV, to mark her life. It is inscribed 'Remember me' and with her initial 'A'. They were made by the Royal goldsmiths, Rundell, Bridge & Rundell.
