1820: King George III of the United Kingdom, whose reign was marked by a series of military conflicts involving his kingdoms, including the American Revolutionary War, dies at the age of 81 in Windsor Castle in England. In his later years, he started suffering from mental illness and increasing dementia. In 1810, his eldest son, George, Prince of Wales, took over rule of Great Britain as prince regent and by the end of 1811 George III was permanently insane. From then on, he lived in seclusion at Windsor Castle until his death.
