King George IV (1762 - 1830)


RCIN 2010

Chantrey originally created this image in 1821 – the year of the coronation of George IV – showing him as an ancient field-marshal. It became the ‘official’ likeness of the king and numerous copies were made. This particular example was intended for display in the ‘Temple of Military Fame’ at Kew to commemorate the Prince Regent’s role in the defeat of Napoleon.

Commissioned by William IV, 1837
