George IV (George Augustus Frederick; 12 August 1762 – 26 June 1830) was monarch of the United Kingdom from 1820 until his death in 1830. He succeeded his father, George III, but had served as Prince Regent from 1811, after George III had relapsed into mental illness. George IV was also King of Hanover.

George IV did not engage in the business of actual government, instead preferring to indulge in leisurely and stylistic pursuits. He gained a reputation within his own life as being irresponsible.

George IV in Trail of GloryEdit

George IV's reign coincided with the outbreak of war between the United States and the Confederacy of the Arkansas. It was his government's policy not to maintain any relations with the Confederacy, despite its possible value a stumbling block to U.S. expansion.

General Robert Ross, a veteran of the War of 1812, viewed George IV as "dissolute", and was saddened to realize that George's most likely heir, his brother William, the Duke of Clarence was even more dissolute.
