A sketch of individuals and their order in the coronation procession is featured at the top of the page. 60 years as king, George III's was the second longest reign in British history. He was third Hanoverian monarch, but the first to be born in England and use English as his first language. His reign was curtailed by periodic bouts of mental instability, which many contemporary commentators ascribed to the strain of the American conflict, but was more likely caused by the hereditary physical disorder called porphyria. 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 in the British Library.
