The longest reigning King of England watched the birth of America, the French Revolution, the dawn of modern science and the Agricultural revolution without ever leaving England. In fact, he hardly left Windsor. He was proud to be English and his bizarre eccentricities eventually proved to be real madness – but the people loved him. They called him ‘Farmer George’ and he set a moral and respectable example of what the monarchy should be, one that has trickled down right to the present day.
