George III, Britain’s longest-reigning king, has gone down in history as a cruel tyrant, a disaster who frittered away the colonies and went mad in his old age, and the pompous monarch of the musical Hamilton. Acclaimed historian and biographer Andrew Roberts takes the opposite view, arguing that George was a wise, humane and even enlightened king, brave at moments of crisis and stoical in the face of his descent – five times during his life – into mental illness. Offering a convincing, modern diagnosis for George’s condition, he paints a nuanced portrait of the much-maligned monarch.
