Share this story with friends

American history hasn't been kind to our last king. He's viewed as a tyrant, the Declaration of Independence claims that he was unfit to lead a free people, and the musical Hamilton paints him as a brute. The truth is a bit more nuanced. 

English historian Andrew Roberts tells the story of King George III, and why he isn't the man he's often painted out to be.

​Be sure to check out Andrew's fantastic dive into King George III on Amazon.
