Prince of Great Britain Octavius (in 1782, by Thomas Gainsborough)


British royalty, styled The Prince Octavius. He was the thirteenth child and eighth son of King George III and his queen consort Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz. Six months after the death of his brother Prince Alfred, Octavius was inoculated with the smallpox virus. Several days later, he became ill. His subsequent death on 3 May 1783 at 8pm at the age of four devastated his parents. His father's later bouts of madness would involve hallucinations of his darling youngest son.
