Entertaining and insightful, this four-volume history will delight history buffs. Queen Anne died without an heir, bringing to the throne George I, of the German House of Hanover. Author Justin McCarthy examines the lives and reigns of the four Georges and William IV, whose death ended the personal union of Britain and Hanover. The final volume of McCarthy’s history begins with the reign of George IV (1820-1830)—whose last words were recorded, “O God, this is death.” King William IV’s seven-year reign is then discussed, as well as the emancipation of labor. McCarthy closes with the death of King William IV in 1837.
