The Death of King George IV – 26 June 1830

Posted on June 25th, 2013 by The British Newspaper Archive

On 26 June 1830, King George IV (perhaps better known as the Prince Regent) passed away at Windsor Castle, aged 67.

Known as ‘the first gentleman of England’, we thought we’d mark the day by posting two, contemporary newspaper stories that report on the death of George IV.
