King George III
Although he never visits the colonies, his presence and authority are greatly felt.
In many ways, King George III was the right king, at the wrong time. During a time of peace, his stability and reason would have made him loved by all of his subjects. However, his obsessive compulsive traits and resistance to change meant that he refused to even consider altering the nature of Great Britain’s relationship to the colonies. Had he been more flexible, it is possible that America, like Canada, might still be a part of the Commonwealth.
