SATURDAY, MAY 1, 1937 BLYTHEVILLE (ARKJ COURIER NEWS [IHluSI The Thivdjmcl Fourth Georges and Their Queens Mouse of Hanover Recame Truly Bvilish Under His Reign. By MII.TON IIUONNKIl .MIA Senile Stall' CftrrespindtMil LONDON.—The reign of Klnj George ill of England was ot pa- triarclui! length, (i!) years. It wa:. mad'j tragic by sulV2riu : i, bllnclnes>, total dealnei.s, madness. It was embittered and acquired vast his- j ' toric importance by th? loss of the American colonies. Kill it accfHhplished the downfall of Napoleon, thus eliminatimj tlie greatest menace lo the lifs of Britain since the Norman coniiiiast. I It saw the expansion and irjgran-1 (iisement of tile nalinn's powers' and wealth, the beginning of ii>-.: : nation's greater destiny. H cemented Ihe kiuj.sjiip of the House of Hanover and uu'ie this house truly British for tha first time. And it showed the people of the realm that a king could be a decent, -simple, home-loving, deeply religious inun—a tradition which the IHth and sixth Georges were to continue. George 111 was Ihe first Hanoverian king to be born in England. He was the first to live a godly, .serene, family life. Father Bled Without Attaining the Throuc George was born June 4, 173S, son of Frederick, Prince of Wales, atid Augusta, who was a daughter of the Duke of Sase-Gotha. His father died when he was 13 and the boy thus became heir to the throne of his grandfather. He learned French and German, bul his English was bad and all lih life he could not spell correctly. He grew up In a world in which the Brilish peerage had all the fun and all the poiver an:l was dissolute, impious and immoral ns it was powerful. George mounted the throne a moral and a pious man and such he remained all his life —a creature of simple tastes, who loved his wife, his children, his fireside. He liked to play at farming and so became known "Farmer George." l-'cll in I.nve With Charlotte Tlirough CorrestHNlilence Hp fell in love with a letter written to him by Princess Charlotle of Mccklenburg-Strelitz and in 1761 married her, his proposal letter inviting her to be "Queen of Great Britain, France and Ireland.' This was probably the last time an English King clung to the illusion that'lie'still ruled over part of France.- -. . Their match was a happy one They reared their 15 children. They danced lon<r hours in simple familj parties. George sat and listened while his Charlotte played on the spinet. He adored iong sermon; and church music. His mother lout ago had pronounced him a dull bul good boy and in his private life hi remained exactly that. • Kcgaincil for flic Crown Many Dormant 1'rerogatives In his public life he was no quite so happy. He could not. un- dersiand great men. He disliked statesmen like Fox and Chathan and Burke, and warriors like Nelson who shed lustre on his era He had exalted ideas of the prc rogativcs of the crown nnrt steadilj and stubbornly resumed power which had been taken l>y the cabi net. He seized much of the patron age and a party of "King's friends grew up. He used corruption both in elections and in Parliament l< gain his ends and he did breal the long oligarchy of Ihe \vhi party. He disliked Ihc American colo nlsts because of their growing i n dependence and was happiest when he found a ministry subservien lo his ideas of crushing then From mo to 1782 he virtually di reeled affairs. He heartily favorc the long wars with France whlcl ^ finally broke Napoleon's power, an he stubbornly opposed cmancipa tion of the Roman Catholics amon his subjects. The closing years of his- lit were as , black as those of som protagonist in a stark Greek trag edy. In 1755 he was mjntally de ranged for some time, but reco\ ered.
