It's most expedient, dear reader, to request your pardon in advance for the various liberties I've taken, both with history and with a few deadly dull realities. Of course King Frederick Augustus I of Saxony had no son; but it was so much fun pretending what might have happened if he had, that I can only shuffle my feet and beg your indulgence.
As well, the Pantheon, Oxford Street, wasn't rebuilt into a bazaar until 1833–34. But the conservatory, as chronicled by British History Online, provided just the atmosphere and privacy two lovers could be expected to seek, and therefore I require a further indulgence regarding its architectural timeline.
