George III (full name George William Frederick; 4 June 173829 January 1820), was King of Great Britain and Ireland from 25 October 1760 to 29 January 1820.[1]

King George suffered from mental illness in his later years.[1][2] In 1782, the Prime Minister at the time, Lord North, confidentially reached out to then-Minister for Magic Porteus Knatchbull to see if he could help with the king's condition.[2] However, this resulted in a rumour spreading that Lord North believed in wizards, triggering a motion of no confidence that forced his resignation.[2]
