George III and the Mad Business
George III is often referred to as “Mad King George.” But for most of his 60-year reign (1760-1820), the longest in British history to that time, he did not show signs of madness.

(Image: George III, 1771, by Johan Zoffany) His first confirmed episode of what contemporaries called madness at the time was in 1788, 28 years into his reign. This is the event portrayed in…

I don't believe the Hall is usually decked out like this. We were lucky! (And if I lived in London, I'd be at this place every weekend, if not more often.) Hampton Court Palace.
