Why is George II the forgotten monarch? In this new biography--the first for over 30 years--Jeremy Black explores why George II has been so neglected and demonstrates convincingly that he is a worthy subject of enquiry.
Exploiting rich archival resources--including contemporary satire and letters--Black amasses evidence that reveals much about George himself. In the process he goes beyond biography to provide a window on the King's world and a clear assessment of a difficult period of consolidation in British history.
