Titi

(Prince). Frederick, Prince of Wales, eldest son of George II. Seward, a contemporary, tells us that Prince Frederick was a great reader of French memoirs, and that he himself wrote memoirs of his contemporaries under the pseudonym of “Prince Titi.”

There was a political fairy tale by St. Hyacinathe (1684-1740) called the History of Prince Titi. Ralph also wrote a History of Prince Titi. These histories are manifestly covert reflections on George II. and his belongings.
