George IV is the current King of the United Kingdom. Prior to succeeding his father, George III, and ascending the British throne, he was his father's regent from 1811 to 1820.




In late 1810, his father, George III, fell very ill and was unable to reign on his own anymore. Thus, from 1811 onwards, George had to act as his father's regent.[1]

A Darker Shade of Magic[]


On October 15, 1819, in St. James's Palace, George waits for Kell Maresh who, to his annoyance, arrives late. Kell hands George a letter from Red London, and George takes his time to read it and finish his reply. Bored, Kell begins to drums his fingers on a table and extinguishes candles, distracting George.

After he has finished his letter, George asks Kell to take a short walk with him. On their walk, George invites him to dinner, but Kell refuses and George begrudingly gives him his letter and orders some guards to lead Kell to the gate. Then, he leaves.[2]
