Description

From George I to the accession of Queen Victoria in 1837; the Hanoverians span a period of 123 years. A fairly stable period with five kings, one of whom, (George III) was to be the longest reigning king in British history. We start our visit in 1714, with a German who is 52nd in line to the throne and who became monarch without being able to speak a single word of English! 1727 sees George II come to the thrown; his reign was to last until 1760 when George III's 60 year rule began. George IV was crowned in 1820 followed ten years later by the last of the Hanoverians William IV. Here also was a period of great political reform, which amongst other things saw the election of Britain's first Prime Minister; Robert Walpole and the introduction of Income Tax. It was a time that despite the loss of the American colonies saw the British Empire cover a third of the globe. Enjoy this informative look at the Hanoverians which is expertly presented by Alan Ereira and complimented throughout by atmospheric re-enactments.
