'A delight to read, an enormously enjoyable and skilful portrait' - Philip Ziegler Christopher Hibbert presents a gripping portrait of the enigma that was George IV, a man who ruled over Britain twice; firstly as regent (1811-20) for his insane father, George III, and secondly as King (1820-30); a man hated by many during his lifetime for his indolence, but whose substantial legacy has forced history to judge him more favourably.
