Product Description


For me he [George IV] has always been a joy so I was delighted to see Tom Ambrose coming to his defence. --Duncan Fallowell, Daily Express

JULY 2009 BOOK OF THE MONTH. From the first biography of George IV in 1831 to the most recent in 2001, Mad King George's son has commonly been held up to ridicule as a weak, selfish and incompetent spendthrift, barely tolerated by his ministers, loathed by most of his family and dependent on the emotional support of grasping mistresses. Tom Ambrose, however, has uncovered new details that suggest that, for all his faults, George IV just may have been the most humane and amusing of all British monarchs, notwithstanding his love of the high life. --Majesty Magazine

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read. The real of Prinny. 29 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Was great to read about the real Prinny. He was a kind and caring man with much misguide parents. Not surpised he was a 'rake'. Dont think much of some of his 'friends' Some took advantage of him. I know a lot of people who spend what they dont have. That was a failing.... but I liked him.
