King George IIIis most well known for being the King of ¬†England during himself, George appointed a series of rather incompetent men to serve as his ministers. The result was inconsistency in governmental policy. The wildly unpopular stamp Act was imposed on the colonies; it was repealed under the Marquess of Rockingham, only to have new duties levied with the Towshend Acts of lord chatham. Meanwhile, Geoge gave in to the reality of patronage poliament. This later became fodder for American charge of corruption, foppery, and irresponsible degradation in the English government.
