Summary
"In this new biography of the greatly misunderstood and misrepresented King, Christopher Hibbert offers us the most detailed, complex appraisal of George's character and actions."--BOOK JACKET. "Teeming with court machinations, sexual intrigues, and familial conflicts, and peopled by such luminaries as Bach, Dr. Johnson, Sir Joshua Reynolds, Handel, Henry Fielding, Alexander Pope, Mozart, and the American Founding Fathers, George III opens a window on the tumultuous, rambunctious, revolutionary 18th century while stripping away the accrued layers of public pomp and popular misconceptions that have come to obscure King George. Hibbert's biography, both rollicking and scholarly, is sure to alter our understanding of this fascinating, complex, and very human King who so strongly shaped our own destiny."--Jacket
