  George I of Great Britain - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
George I, the first Hanoverian monarch of Great Britain and Ireland, was not a fluent speaker of the English language; instead, he spoke his native German, and was for this ridiculed by his British subjects.
In 1717, the birth of a grandson led George I to quarrel with the Prince of Wales.
George I was extremely unpopular in Great Britain, especially due to his supposed inability to speak English; recent research, however, reveals that such an inability may not have existed later in his reign.
