The eldest son of King George III, George acted as Prince Regent between 1811 and 1820 due to his father's insanity. He reigned as King George IV from 1820 to 1830. An extravagant and dissolute man, George IV was also one of the greatest royal collectors and patrons of art and architecture. Thomas Lawrence, who painted this portrait, was knighted by the king in 1815.
