George III: America’s Last King

By

I am reading Jeremy Black’s George III: America’s Last King. George III considered himself a patriot, taking pride in being an English king, though he was always threatening to abdicate and return to Hannover if he became displeased with his ministers and the House of Commons. George III wanted to reign above partisan politics, considering himself not the titular head of a powerful country, but, indeed, one of three “branches” with equal weight in the formation of English policy both at home and abroad.
