Rather than reaffirm George III's reputation as Mad King George, Hibbert portrays him as not only a competent ruler during most of his reign, but also as a patron of the arts and sciences, as a man of wit and intelligence, indeed, as a man who greatly enhanced the reputation of the British monarchy until he was finally stricken by a rare hereditary disease.

A well written overview of the man's life, though somewhat light on the political side. A good read and a nice counter-argument to the usual "mad King George" propaganda.
