George IV, King
b. 1762-08-12
d. 1830-06-26
Regent in 1811 and monarch in 1820, King George IV—christened George Augustus Frederick—was better known for his indulgences than his policies. The despatches refer only to acts passed during his reign. In 1829, he grudgingly allowed his government to pass the Catholic Relief Act that removed many restrictions on Roman Catholics.
