9781473871229: Kings of Georgian Britain

For over a century of turmoil, upheaval and scandal, Great Britain was a Georgian land. From the day the German-speaking George I stepped off the boat from Hanover, to the night that George IV, bloated and diseased, breathed his last at Windsor, the four kings had presided over a changing nation.

Kings Georgian Britain offers a fresh perspective on the lives of the four Georges and the events that shaped their characters and reigns. From love affairs to family feuds, political wrangling and beyond, it is a chance to peer behind the pomp and follow these iconic figures from cradle to grave. As their very different lives will show, being a king isn't always about grand parties and jaw-dropping jewels, and sometimes following in a father's footsteps can be the hardest job around.

Take a step back in time and meet the wives, mistresses, friends and foes of these remarkable kings who shaped the nation, and find out what really went on behind closed palace doors. Whether dodging assassins, marrying for money, digging up their ancestors or sparking domestic disputes that echoed down the generations, the Georgian kings of Great Britain were never short on drama.

About the Author:

Catherine Curzon is a royal historian who writes on all matters 18th century at www.madamegilflurt.com. Her work has featured on HistoryExtra.com, the official website of 'BBC History Magazine' and in publications such as 'Explore History', 'All About History', 'History of Royals' and 'Jane Austen's Regency World'. She has provided additional research for 'An Evening with Jane Austen at the V&A and spoken at venues including the Royal Pavilion in Brighton, Lichfield Guildhall and Dr Johnson's House. Catherine holds a Masters degree in Film and when not dodging the furies of the guillotine, writes fiction set deep in the underbelly of Georgian London. Her previous book, 'Life in the Georgian Court', is available from Pen & Sword. She lives in Yorkshire atop a ludicrously steep hill.

Review:

"Catherine Curzon has charted the personal and political intrigues of the Georgian monarchs in this chronological series of amusing anecdotes. She's often whimsical, has a good sense of pace and you can imagine her stifling a smirk while writing this unusual biography." (History of Royals)

Overall, Catherin Curzon’s Kings of Georgian Britain is a perfect introductory text to the four Georges that I would highly recommend to anyone who is interested in this fascinating period of British history or the history of the royal family in general. Also if this one interest you keep your eyes peeled for her next book which is going to been on Queens of Georgian Britain which I cannot wait to get my hands on. (Where There's Ink, There's Paper)
