“He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.” That’s what the American subjects of George III said about him when they declared their independence from Great Britain.
George vowed to crush the rebels and launched his country into a seven year bloodbath called the American Revolution. He wanted to be known as the man who saved the British Empire. Instead, he ended his days ravaged by insanity and plagued by failures.
He would always be remembered as the king who lost America.
