king is blamed for "losing" the American colonies by compelling
them to rebel against unfair taxation. As a devout Christian, the
king never intended to compel anybody, and he was very sympathetic
with the Methodists and peace-loving Quakers. Even if he wanted too,
the king had absolutely no power to compel anybody because Parliament
stripped the monarchy of all its finances with the Civil List Act
was well aware that theoretically nothing in either the Bill of Rights
of 1689 or the 1701 Act of Settlement stood in the way of his declaring
war, nominating peers, appointing bishops and ambassadors as well
as judges and army and naval officers, and summoning or dissolving
Parliament. But in practice he was constrained from doing so, since
the Civil List Act of 1698 was intended to give the monarchy finances
enough only for the Court and the civil service. It was Parliament
which voted money each year for the Army and Navy and for servicing
the national debt. The King therefore needed Parliament's approval
of his government, and he soon came to realise that his undoubted
power of appointing Ministers was qualified by the necessity of gaining
parliamentary support for their measures. (Hibbert, George III,
the crown's revenue was further reduced by Edmund Burke in 1782:
designed to reduce the influence of the Crown went through Parliament
with little opposition. The King feared that the ministers would seize
the opportunity to impose Treasury control over the Privy Purse, but
this seems never to have been their intention. There were in effect
three measures: the disfranchisement of officers of the customs and
excise; an Act to incapacitate government contractors from sitting
in the House of Commons; and Burke's Civil List Act, designed to reduce
government expenditure and prevent the Civil List from running into
debt. The King accepted all three measures, and suggested a number
of improvements to Burke's Act. (Brooke, King George III,

discovered so justly adapted to the occasion, that I must say that
I not only receive with pleasure the assurance of the friendly dispositions
of the United States, but that I am very glad that the choice has
fallen upon you to be their minister. I wish you, sir, to believe,
and that it be understood in America, that I have done nothing in
the late contest but what I thought myself indispensably bound to
do by the duty which I owed to my people. I will be very frank with
you, I was the last to consent to separation; but the separation having
been made, and having become inevitable, I have always said, as I
say now, that I would be the first to meet the friendship of the United
States as an independent power. (McCullough, John Adams,

Prince of Wales' top secret marriage to Maria Fitzherbert in 1785
1785, George Augustus, the eldest son of the king contracted a top
secret marriage with Papal Maria Fitzherbert. That marriage violated
2 Acts of Parliament: the Act of Succession of 1701, and the Royal
Marriage Act of 1772.

fatale Maria was a widow who had already
buried 2 husbands. Everything
had to be done clandestinely but the Prince of Wales assured Maria
that he would repeal the Royal Marriage Act as soon as he became king:
will be helpful to mention here three statements made by the Prince
to Knight which help us to understand Maria's surrender and the
Prince's understanding of the crisis he was provoking. Knight later
told Sir William Fraser: 'You have no idea what were his powers
of persuasion: he could when he chose be the most delightful of
men; indeed irresistible.' Secondly, the Prince
told Knight that he would 'repeal the Royal Marriage Act the instant
he came to the Throne.' (Munson,
Maria Fitzherbert, p. 144).

poison having failed to kill the king, the physicians said that the
king was mad and incapable of performing his royal duties. Parliament's
answer was that the Prince of Wales should be appointed Regent:
November it seemed likely that the twenty-eight-year reign of George
III was coming to an end and that the Prince would become Regent.
As such he would exercise royal power to construct governments, appoint
and dismiss ministers, create peers and distribute patronage. It was
assumed that within hours of taking over the Prince would dismiss
Pitt and put the Opposition into power. The three great goals of eighteenth-century
politics –the disposing of peerages, places and pensions–would
be his at last. As for Maria, who could say what would happen to her?
Maria Fitzherbert, p. 213).
On the morning
of November 29, 1788, the king was forcibly removed from Windsor Castle
to the White House at Kew.

dungeon. The chair was designed by American Revolution "patriot"
"Dr." Benjamin Rush. In the most unkindest cut of all, medicine
man Rush called his torture chair a "Tranquilizing Chair:"
was also confined in a specially made chair–his 'coronation
chair' he called it–to ensure his 'compliance with whatever
[was] thought proper'. And once, when he was tied in the chair to
be given a severe lecture on his improper and repetitive remarks about
Lady Pembroke, a handkerchief was stuffed in his mouth to keep him
quiet until the reprimand was completed.
(Hibbert, George III, p. 277).
Britons who wrote about the illegal marriage of the Prince of Wales
to Maria Fitzherbert were imprisoned for libel, and many of them never
survived their brutal captivity.
all the efforts of the "doctors" to kill the king or drive
him mad, they were abject failures. The king gradually recovered, and
by March 1789, he was ready to resume his kingly duties:
14 March the King returned to his favourite residence, and at every
village on the road crowds turned out to cheer him. He rode on horseback,
and the warmth of his reception when he arrived quite overwhelmed
him. 'All Windsor came out to meet the King', wrote Fanny Burney,
and even the soldiers on guard at the Castle were in tears. He had
a much quieter night, he wrote the next morning, than any he had experienced
since his illness; 'and the joy that appears in every countenance
and the good sense of my neighbours in not wishing to incommode cannot
fail of having a due effect'. (Brooke, King George III, p.

to the French Revolution, France had experienced some disastrous grain
harvests, but grain speculator Louis Philippe Joseph exasperated the
situation by shipping grain to Britain:
July 13 1788, France had experienced the most violent and sustained
hailstorm in its history which devastated the most fertile land and
ruined the harvest. There were persistent rumours at the time, related
in great detail by the historian Montjoie, that the Due d'Orléans
had taken full advantage of this natural calamity to acquire the remaining
grain and ship it to England. This had been made possible under the
calamitous free-trade agreement signed a year earlier by the Finance
Minister, de Brienne. The plan appears to have been devised by Laclos
and to have been executed by the Marquis Ducrest. The intention was
to hold the grain in England until famine forced the King to abdicate
and then ship it back to a grateful France. This was certainly a dangerous
and callous scheme to inflict on starving people and reflects Laclos'
ruthless approach to politics. It is hard to understand why Louis
Philippe Joseph, with his sincere and well-established reputation
for charity and concern for the poor, agreed to it. (Ambrose, Godfather
of the Revolution, p.137).
Philippe Joseph, Duc d'Orleans, was the driving force behind the French
Revolution. He was also a very close friend of the Prince of Wales.
Philippe Joseph, "Philippe Égalité,"
was the driving force behind the French Revolution and
the execution of his cousin, King Louis XVI.
1752, Louis inherited the title Duke of Chartres, and
in 1769 he married Louise Marie Adélaïde de Bourbon, the
richest heiress in France.
1784, Louis visited London and became very good friends
with the Prince of Wales.
Louis Maria Adélaïde
first met the Prince of Wales in 1783 but King George was present and
they could not discuss their plans for the upcoming French Revolution:
he returned to England the following year Chartres found that his
relationship with the Prince of Wales was much improved and verging
on a warm friendship. Now they began going about together, visiting
the races and theatres in the company of the prettiest actresses.
Invited to join George in July at his pleasure dome, the Brighton
Pavilion, Louis Philippe Joseph stayed on until late August. Later
he wrote his host: 'Nothing has given me greater pleasure than your
assurances of friendship. Please count me as one of your best and
most devoted admirers.' Returning to London, he insisted on attending
another parliamentary debate, this time the House of Commons, a democratic
institution that did not exist in France. By chance the debate included
a powerful speech by Pitt the Younger attacking the power of the crown
and blaming it for the growing corruption and infringement of civil
liberties that were against the interests of the British people. (Ambrose,
Godfather of the Revolution, pp. 95-96).

A new more compliant
Pope was chosen by Napoleon. Soon after the new Pope was installed,
Prince George and Maria sent a priest to Rome named Fr. John Nassau,
who had an audience in Latin with the new Pope:
To do this Maria
needed some authority to confirm her view. Obviously she could turn
neither to the courts nor to Parliament. As a Catholic, however, she
did have a card up her sleeve. Like Catherine of Aragon she could
appeal to the Vatican for a decision. While she later said she would
have left England had the Pope declared her marriage void, she was
in 1799 probably fairly sure the Pope would acknowledge the validity
of her marriage from the Church's point of view. It was not so much
that she was a devout Catholic – how does one separate out devotion
from interest? – but that she had no other source available.

everything went as planned because the king was not dead
and the vast majority of the common people were totally
opposed to the secret Papal marriage.
Papal Bull legitimizing the marriage finally reached London in November
marriage was found to be canonically valid, and Maria Fitzherbert
was therefore free to return to the Prince of Wales as his wife, provided
the Prince was suitably penitent, which he no doubt claimed to be.
John Nassau did not reach London until the following November, when
a papal bull outlining Rome's decision was handed to a grateful Maria,
who now knew she could live as the Prince's wife with an easy conscience,
regardless of public opinion.(Irvine, The King's Wife: George
IV and Mrs Fitzherbert, pp. 93-94).

of the just is blessed so the entire nation went into mourning. The
common people knew that the persecutions he endured were all religiously
the King's death was announced, shops closed their doors all over
the country, and the whole nation, so it was said, went into mourning,
even the poor of London wearing some token of their sympathy. Over
30,000 people came down to Windsor for the funeral, which took place
in St George's Chapel on the night of 16 February. The procession
of black-clothed mourners, accompanied by heralds in their brightly
coloured tabards, walked by torchlight from the Castle to the Chapel
along a specially constructed platform draped in black cloth and lined
with soldiers. To the sound of muffled drums, trumpets, minute-guns
and the tolling of the death-bell, the mourners passed through the
south door of the Chapel as the choir sang the anthem 'I Know that
my Redeemer Liveth.' (Hibbert, George III, p. 409).
George was finally succeeded by the Prince of Wales. In 1795, George
