US Geography: after whom is Charlotte, NC, named?

Self-tutoring about US geography: the tutor checks the origin of the name of Charlotte, NC.

Apparently, Charlotte was founded in 1768, while NC was still one of the Thirteen Colonies, with King George as its (theoretical) King. Queen Charlotte was his wife at the time: Charlotte, NC is named in her honor.
