  George III Of Britain - LoveToKnow 1911
[George William ] (1738-1820), king of Great Britain and Ireland, son of Frederick, prince of Wales, and grandson of George II., whom he succeeded in 1760, was born on the 4th of June 1738.
Those who thought that the true basis of government was aristocratical were now of one mind with those who thought that the true basis of government was monarchical; and these two classes were joined by a far larger multitude which had no political ideas whatever, but which had a moral horror of the guillotine.
The king's reason finally broke down after the death of the princess Amelia, his favourite child; and the prince of Wales (see George Iv.) became prince regent.

  Princess Amelia of the United Kingdom - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Princess Amelia (7 August 1783–November 2, 1810), was a member of the British Royal Family, the youngest daughter of King George III and Queen Charlotte.
Amelia and her sisters Charlotte, Augusta Sophia, Elizabeth, Mary and Sophia were over-protected and isolated, which restriced their meeting eligible suitors of their own age.
Amelia fell in love with Sir Charles Fitzroy (an equerry 21 years older than her and the son of Charles FitzRoy, 1st Baron Southampton), but was forbidden to marry him by her mother Queen Charlotte.

As for the princess craze: call me nuts but I believe that young children strive to imitate some of the archetypal figures that can be embodied by princesses and knights: purity, loyalty, bravery, all values young children like to imagine themselves around.
In our house, princesses, knights, pirates and all manner of other imaginary beings with their accessories(silks wrapped as costumes, knives made from cardboard, treasures made from dryer lint) and values are welcome.
There were princesses and evil queens and an occasional handsome prince, but the star of every story was a princess, although sometimes she was a rock star.

To the Whigs he was the Protestant hero, to the Romantics, he was the Philosopher king, to the victors of 1945, he was the Proto-Nazi, and to Hitler himself he was the architect of modern Germany whose portrait went down into the bunker with the doomed Führer.
It would be foolish to argue that Frederick the Great as battlefield tactician, or even as master of realpolitik, was solely the product of his upbringing but his underlying characteristics which determined his approach to war or politics were formed in the turmoil of the relationship he had with his father.
He survived, but coming close to the block on the orders of one's own father was as great a constraint on normal family life in the eighteenth century as it would be in ours.
