The Decline of Personal Monarchy

The Decline of Personal Monarchy

(p.182) VI The Decline of Personal Monarchy
King George III and the Politicians

Richard Pares

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the decline of personal monarchy, which was in part a personal decline. George III himself was decaying after his attack of madness in 1788. His continued interference with military organization showed that he had by no means lost his command of detail; and the crises of 1801 and 1807 proved that he could still have the last word on a question of high policy.

Keywords:   personal monarchy, monarchy, personal decline, George III, military organization
