Description
Information
George III, the longest-serving British king, presided over the loss of the American colonies and the defeat of Napoleon. His manner and humour were eccentric and his court was crippled by decorum, constant family disputes and long periods of royal madness. Yet he was also genuinely loved by his subjects. He generously supported many scientists, musicians, painters and writers, and largely created both Windsor Castle and Buckingham Palace. In this vivid biography, drawing extensively on the documents and artworks in the Royal Archives, Christopher Hibbert reassesses every aspect of the man and his age.
'Typically stylish, spirited and accomplished.'
