Footnotes

  • The Royal Arms of George III, born 1738, succeeded, 1760, died 1820. George III inherited this shield from the succession to the British throne of George I, Elector of Hanover. The separate components of the shield reflect his territorial titles at that time: King of the Great Britain (England and Scotland united) France and Ireland and Kurprinz of Hanover.

    The use of this shield ceased on 1st January 1801 when the Union of Great Britain and Ireland, authorised by both Irish Houses of Parliament, took effect and the anachronistic claim to the Kingdom of France was dropped.
