    that George III had hardly any real power as it resided with Parliament. Much like GWB in relation to Cheney, Rumsfeld, etc. I guess!

        with 1 & 3. 2 would apply to the dissolute GIV and his equally unpleasant brothers rather than GIII. By comparison GIII was a pretty good king and family man when sane. GIII might have been a would be tyrant but as I say, unlike GWB, he didn't have any real power so he never had the opportunity.

        In fact thinking about it GWB shares much more in common with GIV. A failure who owed his position to hereditary privilege and kept getting bailed out financially. A greedy debauched individual with little talent for politics. And he also had problems in his relationship with his father who in both cases was the better man.
