When war broke out with France in 1793, George, Prince of Wales, begged his father, King George III, for a command in the army, but was refused.

It's quite ironic, as he then became Prince Regent during George III's incapacity. And of course, as you have posted in other threads, he was very artistic, once he came into his own. Have you been to the Royal  Pavillion at Brighton?

Prinny was quite artistic in a very similar way to King LudwigII of Bavaria, who built NeuSchwanstein. The Royal Pavillion in Brighton is just as over the top and was ridiculously expensive.

In 1785 George, Prince of Wales and Maria Fitzherbert contracted a marriage that was invalid under English civil law because his father King George III had not consented to it.

In August 1818 the Prince of Wales (the future King George IV) appointed a three-man commission to investigate his wife's adulterous activities.

King George IV introduced a number of styles to England. Instead of knee breeches, he took up wearing looser trousers.     
He popularized dark colors. Dark colors were suppose to make him look slimmer.

King George IV's visit to Scotland was orchestrated by the novelist and playwright Walter Scott. The visit lasted for three weeks. It was a public relations success.
