What was King George's madness?

This film shows the story of King George II, who suffered from madness during 1788. It triggered the Regency Crisis of 1788 and triggered a power struggle between the two factions of Parliament: the conservative Prime Minister William Pitt the Elderer and the reform-minded Leader the Opposition Charles James Fox.



So, how did King George's madness begin?

Scientists think that arsenic could have contributed to the development of porphyria. This is a metabolic condition that causes blood toxins to build up. This could explain why King George III (1738-1820), suffered from such severe attacks late in his life.

Who also wrote the madness of King George's? Alan Bennett
