Event description
Poor George III has not figured highly in British minds.

About this event

Talk by Professor Jeremy Black who says of George III (who visited Exeter in 1789) “Madness is hilarious when it occurs two centuries ago. The character of King George III — bewigged and bonkers — provides comic relief for many.” Poor George has not figured highly in British minds. His reign from 1760 to 1820 was marred by that American debacle, trouble in Ireland, war with France, the Gordon Riots, discord in parliament and an embarrassing descent into lunacy.

Non-members are welcome but there is a £3 entry charge
