George III

This monumental statue in Windsor ‘The Copper Horse’ has a lovely setting, overlooking the Long Walk in Windsor Great Park, through a calm and expansive landscape roamed by deer and pheasants, a pastoral idyll of the kind loved by the British monarchy and people alike. The statue commissioned by his son George IV bears an ironic inscription in Latin, which translates as: The best of fathers. Like so many father-son relationships in the Hanoverian family, George III and George IV were known to have despised one another.
