George III's coronation route is highlighted in green. With 60 years as king, George III had the second longest reign in British history. He was third Hanoverian monarch, but the first to be born in England and speak English as his first language. His reign was curtailed by mental instability brought on by porphyria, though contemporary commentators thought that it been brought on by the strain of the American conflict. He was a cultured monarch who donated to the nation a royal collection of books as the nucleus of a national library, now held in the King's Tower at the British Library.
