George III (1738-1820)
George III was both the sovereign of Great Britain and Ireland as well as Hanover. His sixty-year reign witnessed two major victorious wars with England's traditional enemy, France, but also the loss of most of its American colonies. In addition to these geopolitical challenges, during the latter decades of his reign George increasingly struggled with the more personal demons of madness probably induced by porphyria. Parliament declared the Prince of Wales regent in 1811.
