The PEDIGREE of
George III (King) of ENGLAND

 
     aka George William Frederick GUELPH; Elector/King of HANNOVER; Knight of the Garter; `the King who lost America'; (his 60-year reign is the 9th longest of any European King ever)

    Note: George had two sons who each served as King of England and Hanover, but they left no legitimate descendants and afterwords the thrones diverged. This was due to a difference in inheritance rules: Victoria, daughter of deceased Edward, inherited in England but German rules were less female-friendly and Hanover passed to Edward's younger brother Ernst.

     Born:  1738    Died:  1820
