His reign saw an expansion of the British Empire, as well as the loss of its North American colonies, and the defeat of Napoleon at the head of a resurgent France.
Towards the end of his rule he endured a period of mental illness, with his son taking control as regent.George was a keen patron of Science and Agriculture, often portrayed as a man of the people in contrast to his flamboyant heir George IV.
