    George was born in Lon­don at Nor­folk House. He was the grand­son of King George II, and the el­dest son of Fred­er­ick, Prince of Wales, and Au­gusta of Saxe-Gotha. As Prince George was born two months pre­ma­turely and he was thought un­likely to sur­vive, he was bap­tised the same day by Thomas Secker, who was both Rec­tor of St James's and Bishop of Ox­ford.One month later, he was pub­licly bap­tised at Nor­folk House, again by Secker. His god­par­ents were the King of Swe­den (for whom...

    George, in his ac­ces­sion speech to Par­lia­ment, pro­claimed: \\"Born and ed­u­cated in this coun­try, I glory in the name of Britain\\". He in­serted this phrase into the speech, writ­ten by Lord Hard­wicke, in order to demon­strate his de­sire to dis­tance him­self from his Ger­man fore­bears, who were per­ceived as car­ing more for Hanover than for Britain.Al­though his ac­ces­sion was at first wel­comed by politi­cians of all parties,[e] the first years of his reign were marked by po­lit­i­...

    The Amer­i­can War of In­de­pen­dence was the cul­mi­na­tion of the civil and po­lit­i­cal Amer­i­can Rev­o­lu­tion re­sult­ing from the Amer­i­can En­light­en­ment. Brought to a head over the lack of Amer­i­can rep­re­sen­ta­tion in Par­lia­ment, which was seen as a de­nial of their rights as Eng­lish­men and often pop­u­larly fo­cused on di­rect taxes levied by Par­lia­ment on the colonies with­out their con­sent, the colonists re­sisted the im­po­si­tion of di­rect rule after the Boston Te...

    With the col­lapse of Lord North's min­istry in 1782, the Whig Lord Rock­ing­ham be­came Prime Min­is­ter for the sec­ond time, but died within months. The King then ap­pointed Lord Shel­burne to re­place him. Charles James Fox, how­ever, re­fused to serve under Shel­burne, and de­manded the ap­point­ment of the Duke of Port­land. In 1783, the House of Com­mons forced Shel­burne from of­fice and his gov­ern­ment was re­placed by the Fox–North Coali­tion. The Duke of Port­land be­came Prime Mi...

    For George III, Pitt's ap­point­ment was a great vic­tory. It proved that he was able to ap­point Prime Min­is­ters on the basis of his own in­ter­pre­ta­tion of the pub­lic mood with­out hav­ing to fol­low the choice of the cur­rent ma­jor­ity in the House of Com­mons. Through­out Pitt's min­istry, George sup­ported many of Pitt's po­lit­i­cal aims and cre­ated new peers at an un­prece­dented rate to in­crease the num­ber of Pitt's sup­port­ers in the House of Lords. Dur­ing and after Pitt's...

    After George’s re­cov­ery, his pop­u­lar­ity, and that of Pitt, con­tin­ued to in­crease at the ex­pense of Fox and the Prince of Wales. His hu­mane and un­der­stand­ing treat­ment of two in­sane as­sailants, Mar­garet Nichol­son in 1786 and John Frith in 1790, con­tributed to his popularity. James Had­field's failed at­tempt to shoot the King in the Drury Lane The­atre on 15 May 1800 was not po­lit­i­cal in ori­gin but mo­ti­vated by the apoc­a­lyp­tic delu­sions of Had­field and Ban­nis­ter...

    In late 1810, at the height of his popularity, al­ready vir­tu­ally blind with cataracts and in pain from rheuma­tism, George be­came dan­ger­ously ill. In his view the mal­ady had been trig­gered by stress over the death of his youngest and favourite daugh­ter, Princess Amelia. The Princess's nurse re­ported that \\"the scenes of dis­tress and cry­ing every day ... were melan­choly be­yond description.\\" He ac­cepted the need for the Re­gency Act of 1811, and the Prince of Wales acted as Re­gen...

    George III lived for 81 years and 239 days and reigned for 59 years and 96 days: both his life and his reign were longer than those of any of his pre­de­ces­sors. Only Vic­to­ria and Eliz­a­beth II have since lived and reigned longer.George III was dubbed \\"Farmer George\\" by satirists, at first to mock his in­ter­est in mun­dane mat­ters rather than pol­i­tics, but later to con­trast his homely thrift with his son's grandios­ity and to por­tray him as a man of the people. Under George III, the...
