Time isn't the same for the mad and blind.

—George III, A Darker Shade of Magic, I: The Traveler, I

George III was the king of the United Kingdom from October 1760 to January 1820. However, in late 1810, George became very ill, and from 1811 until his death, his eldest son had to act as his regent.[1]

Physical descriptionEdit

George was an old man with gnarled fingers, blind eyes, and fingernails cut very short to prevent him from hurting himself.



The TravelerEdit

On October 15, 1819, Kell Maresh from Red London paid George his monthly visit in Windsor Castle. George greeted him and asked for his letter which Kell subsequently read out to him while, without making George notice, spontaneously expanding it.

Later, after Kell had finished reading, George apologized for not having been able to write a letter himself. Kell politely expressed his understanding and was about to go, but George called him back, asking him to exchange his old lin with a new one as he could not feel and smell the magic of the old one anymore. Slightly reluctantly, Kell exchanged George's coin and left to meet George's son.[2]


On January 29, 1820, George III died at Windsor Castle.[1] Two weeks later, on February 15, 1820, George was "visited" by Kell for the last time.[3]

Out of UniverseEdit

"George" comes from the Greek Γεωργιος (Georgios) which, in turn, originated from the Greek word γεωργος (georgos) meaning "farmer" or "earthworker."[5]
