The Death of King George IV – 26 June 1830

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.
