Footnotes

  • The arms are those of The Duke of Clarence (later William IV).

    William IV (1765 – 1837) was King of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and of Hanover from 26 June 1830 until his death. William was the third son of George III and younger brother and successor to George IV. He was the last king and penultimate monarch of Britain's House of Hanover.

    He served in the Royal Navy in his youth and was, both during his reign and afterwards, nicknamed the "Sailor King". He served in North America and the Caribbean, but saw little actual fighting. Since his two older brothers died without leaving legitimate issue, he inherited the throne when he was 64 years old.
