History Happy Hour Encore: King George III
Guests: Andrew Roberts
Sunday, July 3, 2022
This Week on History Happy Hour: To celebrate July 4th, how about we take a closer look at the villain of the story? Was King George III really the monster tyrant of lore? Or was he an enlightened King betrayed by incompetent ministers, and unfairly portrayed in American history books for two centuries?
In this encore episode, Chris and Rick again welcome History Happy Hour alum Andrew Roberts to talk about his bold new biography: The Last King of America: The Misunderstood Reign of George III. Drawing on royal records made available for the first time, he invites us to take a few minutes out this Independence Day weekend to re-consider George in a new light.
George III, Sunday at 4PM ET on History Happy Hour, where history is always on tap.
