A Bust of George III

Circa 1810

Measurements: Height: 20cm (8in)



Patinated Bronze. ‘Farmer George’ (1738-1820) bewigged and bare chested on an integral socle.

George III (1738-1820) was King of Great Britain and Ireland from 1760 until the Union of 1801, after which he was King of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland until his death. He was concurrently Duke and Prince-Elector of Brunswick-Luneburg (Hanover) until his promotion to King of Hanover in 1814. He was the third British monarch of the House of Hanover but unlike his two predecessors he was born in Britain, spoke English as his first language, and never visited Hanover. He suffered recurring bouts of madness throughout his long reign, which ultimately gave rise to the Regency of 1810 until the end of his life.
