George III

Tomorrow is the anniversary of George III's death at Windsor Castle in 1820. He was succeeded in turn by his son George IV, then another son, William IV, and then his granddaughter Victoria. For readers who are interested in George III, whose 1774 Articles of War formed the basis for the 1775 American Articles of War, the editor recommends Janice Hadlow, A Royal Experiment: The Private Life of King George III (Holt 2014).
