Description

NGC PF 70 Highest grade

 

King George III  is the longest-reigning king in British history. During his reign of 59 years, the United Kingdom fought wars with France and America. He was also witnessed to the incredible changes experienced in agricultural and industrial revolutions.

King George is more widely known for his ‘madness’. A chemical analysis of the king’s hair found concentrations of arsenic that are many times greater than normal, according to a study in 2005. Scientists believe the arsenic may have caused the onset of an inherited predisposition to an illness called porphyria, a metabolic disease that causes a build up of toxins in the blood. That could explain why King George III suffered such severe attacks so late in his life.
