Description
1836 Life & Times King George IV England French Revolution Napoleon Croly

“The highest of distinctions is service to others.” – King George IV

George Croly was an early 19th-century Irish author and priest known for his legend-based novels. His historical works were less popular during his lifetime than his novels and poetry, but he did write Bible commentaries as well as a biographical account of the life of King George IV.

In this book, ‘Life and times of George IV’, Croly does attempt to incorporate historical significance into his work; however, his literary and story-telling skills prevail. According to Garnett, this work “has no historical value, but is creditable to his independence of spirit.” (Garnett, p.232).

This book is an excellent source on the death of King George III, the French Revolution, Napoleon at Waterloo, the Spanish War, Catholic v Protestant debates, and more.
