George IV ascended to the throne in 1820,
after his fathers death (George III).
Prior to ascension, George IV served as Prince Regent
from 1811 until 1820, due to his fathers ill health.
Dubbed 'the first gentleman of England', he was disliked
by the general population for his extravagance and lack
of leadership during the Napoleonic wars.
