George III was born in 1738, and came to the throne in 1760, marrying his wife Charlotte in 1761 and producing with her no fewer than fifteen children. George was afflicted with porphyria, a painful disease which disrupted his reign as early as 1765, and following further attacks of "madness," went on to debilitate him in the last years of his reign. George III died blind, deaf, and mad at Windsor Castle in 1820. One of the longest reigns in British history, George's rule coincided with some of the most important events in world history, namely the American and French Revolutions and the rise of Napoleon Bonaparte. This magisterial work by John Aiken, a contemporary biographer of the highest caliber, catalogues in fascinating detail the major events of this most remarkable reign. The first volume covers events up to the great British victory over Napoleon at Waterloo. This second volume covers the latter part of the Regency and King George's declining years.
