George IV has come down in popular legend as the ultimate 'bad king': an obese, self-indulgent spendthrift and an unfaithful husband. This penetrating study peels away the myth to ask why, if he was such an unappealing figure, did he have so many devoted friends, among them some of the most brilliant men in the country. What emerges is a very different figure, a charming, thoughtful and humane ruler whom the defeated Napoleon called 'the most generous of my foes'.
