KING GEORGE II
Military appointments for seven general officers, signed by George II in 1759
Document signed "George R". 2 pages (front and verso), 8x12¼. Oct. 27, 1759. This is a military appointment seven officers in an attached list (not included) to the board of general officers. The second in the Hanoverian line of British monarchs, George II (b. 1683) reigned from 1727-1760. He was the last British king to command troops in the field, a victory over the French at Dettingen in 1743. George II's reign did much to consolidate the practice of constitutional monarchy: a king deferring to a Cabinet responsible to Parliament. He also presided over victories against France in India and North America, and also the defeat at Culloden (1745) of the last Jacobite rebellion (on behalf of the former Stuart rulers). Lightly toned, soiled and creased. Random ink stains. Page has been folded three times horizontally. Otherwise in fine condition.
