  2. 18. GEORGE III: THE LIFE AND REIGN OF BRITAIN'S MOST MISUNDERSTOOD MONARCH
    18. GEORGE III: THE LIFE AND REIGN OF BRITAIN'S MOST MISUNDERSTOOD MONARCH

    George III, Britain's longest-reigning king, has gone down in history as a pompous monarch and cruel tyrant. Eminent historian Andrew Roberts's magnificent talk, however, will take entirely the opposite view. As well as giving a revisionist account of the American Revolutionary War, he will portray the King as intelligent, benevolent, and navigating the turbulence of eighteenth-century politics with a strong sense of honour and duty.
