Historical background



George III (4/06/1738-29/01/1820) is the grand-son of George II, whom he succeeded in 1760, and the son of Frederick Louis (1707-1751), Prince of Wales and Augusta Saxe-Gotha. He married Charlotte, daughter of Charles Louis Frederick of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, September 8, 1761 and was crowned on 22. Reached crisis dementia more pronounced, his son George IV must ensure the regency from 1810. George III is the first truly English King of the Hanoverian dynasty. He won the Seven Years War (1756-1763, Treaty of Paris). He lost the North American colonies (1775-1783, Treaty of Versailles 1783). He fights against the revolution and is the enemy of Napoleon. Crazy, he died in 1820 two years after Charlotte.
