  William IV of the United Kingdom - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
William, the son of King George III and younger brother and successor of King George IV, was the penultimate monarch of the House of Hanover.
William did not meddle in politics as much as either his brother or his father, though he did prove to be the last monarch to appoint a Prime Minister contrary to the will of Parliament (in 1834).
William was born on 21 August 1765 at Buckingham House, the son of King George III and Queen Charlotte.

William endeavoured to oppose this, and used Louis's recognition of James Edward the " Old Pretender " as king of England (September 1701) to set the English people in a flame.
War was already declared in 1702, but William, who had long been ailing, died from the combined effects of a fall from his horse and a chill on the 8th of March 1702.
In viewing William's character as a whole one is struck by its entire absence of ostentation, a circumstance which reveals his mind and policy more clearly than would otherwise be the case.

William died at Stirling on the 4th of December 1214 and was buried at Arbroath.
William's reign is a very important period in the early history of Scotland, and may almost be said to mark an epoch in every department of public life.
The relations of England and Scotland and of Scotland and France; the rise of towns, the development of trade and the establishment of order in Scotland itself; and the attitude of the Scottish Church, both to the papal see and to England, were all vitally affected by the events of this reign.

 History of the Monarchy > The Normans > William I
William's claim to the English throne was based on his assertion that, in 1051, Edward the Confessor had promised him the throne (he was a distant cousin) and that Harold II - having sworn in 1064 to uphold William's right to succeed to that throne - was therefore a usurper.
William's wholesale confiscation of land from English nobles and their heirs (many nobles had died at the battles of Stamford Bridge and Senlac) enabled him to recruit and retain an army, by demanding military duties in exchange for land tenancy granted to Norman, French and Flemish allies.
William bequeathed Normandy as he had promised to his eldest son Robert, despite their bitter differences (Robert had sided with his father's enemies in Normandy, and even wounded and defeated his father in a battle there in 1079).

The great change that occurred at the beginning of the 19th century, when the Gothic Revival moved from a phase of sentimental and picturesque attraction to one of greater archaeological exactitude, was determined largely by the research and publications of antiquarians.

 Prince William Henry at the Court in Placentia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-11)
Perhaps the most notable event in the judicial system at Placentia occurred when Prince William Henry, the future King William IV of England arrived on July 1, 1786 and left on September 5, spending most of his time as a surrogate court judge.
The conflict between Prince William and the Catholics of Placentia may have stemmed from so many Church of England congregations using the services of the Catholic clergy and deserting their own church.
Prince William forbade the Catholic priest, Edmund Burke, to make proselytes or officiate at Protestant marriages, ordered him not to use the court house for Roman Catholic services, prohibited the use of the Anglican graveyard by Roman Catholics and relieved Roman Catholics who held public office, of their duty.
