Abstract

This paper re-examines the portrayal of George IV of England in contemporary sources and modern scholarship by looking at his relationship with his secret first wife, Maria Fitzherbert, and her adopted daughter, Minney. It argues for a reinterpretation of the one-sided portrayal of George as a licentious, selfish person.
