In this new edition of the Book of the Georgians, you’ll discover how the dynasty cemented its place in history, from the battlefields on the European continent, the naval encounters at sea and the string of Hanoverian monarchs, to what everyday life was like for the common people of the growing cities and the well-off nobility. Meet the kings and queens who left their mark on the nation, from George III’s descent into madness to the extravagance and patronage of the Prince Regent. Explore a nation in the throes of the Industrial Revolution and the people pushing the boundaries of creativity in art, literature and architecture, such as writers Mary Shelley and Jane Austen, and architects Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown and the Adam Brothers. Packed with beautiful illustrations and insights into the era, this is the perfect guide for anyone who wants to learn more about this legendary period of British history.
