This is a 17 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on the American Revolutionary War – Key Figures - King George III. Each of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.
A member of the Hanover dynasty, which ruled England for almost 200 years, George III was king of Great Britain during some of the nation’s most tumultuous years, including those of the American Revolutionary War. It was his tax policies that so incensed the colonist to the point of open rebellion.
In 1788, illness brought on a mental breakdown, but he briefly recovered, regaining popularity and admiration for his virtue and steady leadership through the French Revolution and Napoleonic Wars. Ultimately, recurring bouts of insanity led Parliament to enact regency to his son, and George III lived his final years with sporadic periods of lucidity, until his death in 1820.
The presentation covers the following:
