Description

Excerpt from A Short History of Our Own Times, Vol. 1 of 2: From the Accession of Queen Victoria to the General Election of 1880 He was, for example, a determined opponent of the measures for the abolition Of the slave trade. But William seems to have been one of the men whom in creased responsibility improves. He was far better as a king than as a prince. He proved that he was able at least to understand that first duty Of a constitutional sovereign which, to the last day Of his active life, his father, George III., never could be brought to com prehend - that the personal predilections and prejudices Of the King must sometimes give way to the public interest. We must judge William by the reigns that went before, and not the reign that came after him, and admit that on the whole he was better than his educa tion, his early Opportunities, and his early promise.
