William IV (Penguin Monarchs)

A King at Sea




The acclaimed Penguin Monarchs series: short, fresh, expert accounts of England's rulers - now in paperback.

William IV, 'the Sailor King', is best known for his naval career and for living for twenty years with the actress Mrs Jordan, with whom he had ten children. Knight's book shows that William was pretty much a disaster in whatever field he found himself.
