Magnificent equestrian portrait of George IV (1762 - 1830) in uniform, right hand pointing forward, his staff following, cavalry and artillery following. The original painting, by John Singleton Copley (1738 - 1815), showed George as Prince Regent, as did this mezzotint when published by Copley in 1813. This example has had the title updated to acknowledge George's accession to the throne in 1820 (seven years after Copley's death), but the details of George's uniform and staff remain unaltered.

William Pitt the Younger (1759-1806) was a British politician. By 1783 he had become the Right Hon. William Pitt when he joined the government of Lord Shelburne as Chancellor of the Exchequer and was appointed a member of the Privy Council. He became the youngest Prime Minister in 1783 at the age of 24. Following the impact of the American Revolution on the Fox-North coalition, Pitt took advantage of this to secure his administration, and began to enact his agenda. His first major piece of legislation as Prime Minister was the India Act 1784. The Regulating Act had been enacted to primarily weed-out corruption in the East India Company in the Bengal. This Act provided for the appointment of a board of control, and a joint government of the company on the crown. The governors of Bombay and Madras were deprived of their independence and given lesser authority in decision making. Calcutta was given great powers in matters of wat, revenue and diplomacy; thus becoming in effect the administrative capital of compnay possessions in India.
