Government reports describing the deteriorating health of King George III and the creation of the Regency of his son, George, Prince of Wales. In February 1789, the Regency Bill, authorizing the Prince of Wales to act as Prince Regent, was introduced and passed in the House of Commons, but before the House of Lords could pass the bill King George III recovered. The Regency did not begin until 1810 when the King became permanently ill. This collection includes the reports of the attending physicians.
