King of England George III


British royalty who succeeded his grandfather, George II. He was the son of HRH Frederick Lewis, Prince of Wales, (born 2/10/1706 in Hanover; died 3/20/1751 NS). Assuming the throne on 10/25/1760 and being crowned on 9/22/1761, he governed during one of the most critical periods in English history. Revolutions in both France and America over a 60-year period modified every aspect of British life, including the loss of the American colonies.

George III was hard working but emotionally unstable, suffering spells of mental derangement at ages 50, 62 and 66, becoming hopelessly insane at 72, October 1810. His son, the future George IV, became regent in 1811 and George III lingered on, blind and later deaf, until his death at 81.

Apart from his spells of madness, he was a conscientious ruler, a faithful husband and a good father to his 15 kids. The loss of the American colonies was not the result of his deficiencies, but of parliamentary policy supported by public opinion. In the last days, the blind, mad, white-bearded old man played the harpsichord music from his youth. He died of a diarrhea attack 1/29/1820, 8:35 PM, Windsor. Late in the 20th century his madness was attributed to porphyria.

Source Notes

Dana Holliday quotes John Brooke, "George III," 1972, "Between 6:00 and 7:00 AM." LMR quotes Miss Pamela Clark, Deputy Registrar of the Royal Archives for the same (May 24 OS).

(Formerly, Penfield Collection quotes NN for 8:00 AM. AFA Bulletin quoted Sibly for 7:51:40 AM. Blackwell gave 7:46 AM LAT (correction to LMT is -2'20"), "culled from Pearce's TA, which cites official records." LMR is skeptical of an LAT time given to the minute and Steinbrecher states that Pearce did not cite official records.)

(Bill Breeze has 7:46 AM LMT)

Sy Scholfield quotes "Memoirs of the Life and Reign of King George the Third, Volume 1" by John Heneage Jesse (London: Tinsley Brothers, 1867), p. 2: "[According to] copies of the MS. entries in the Registers of Births of St. James's Parish, recording the Birth and Baptism of George 3 . . . His Royal Highness George . . . was born this 24th day of May 1738, between seven and eight in the morning at Norfolk-house in St. James's Square."
