About this item
William IV, the 'Sailor King', reigned for just seven years. Rash and impetuous as a young man, he was sent to join the navy by his father, George III, to bring him to order, but he was over promoted at an early age and saw his years of active service marked by a series of calamities. This book deals with his life and work.
