King George III (1738 – 1820) was England’s monarch during the American Revolution. In 1776, America pulled away from Great Britain to gain independence. Many in Britain viewed George III as a failure, since the colonies were lost under his reign.

He was the first son of Frederick, Prince of Wales

and Augusta.

He happily married “Charlotte of Mecklinburg- Strelitz” in 1761.

George was afflicted with mental illness, specifically porphyria, as early as 1765. Reign was given to his son George, the Prince Regent, in 1811. George III died blind, deaf and mad at Windsor Castle on January 29, 1820

Later in the day the prisoners were released. This event is still annually celebrated in France.
