George I
(1660 - 1727)



George I

King of England and Ireland from 1714 to 1727 (succeeding Anne). First of the Hanoverian dynasty. Elector of Hanover from 1698 to 1727. Regarding the Tory party as Jacobite, he favoured the Whigs, leading to the ministries of Townshend and Walpole. George took little interest in England and spent much of his time in Hanover. Accordingly, the cabinet system became intrenched in British political life.
