The second half of George III's reign was characterized by the long struggle against Napoleon to save its own independence and the freedom of various states in Europe.
After this long period of war, Britain was exhausted by heavy taxation, inflation, unemployment and social unrest in town and country.

George IV's reign was a period of reforms.
The Tories, then in power, were against any interference of the State in economic matters at home or in the internal affairs of other countries. They recognized the independence of the Spanish colonies in South America, supported the Greeks in their struggle for independence and were in favour of the Risorgimento and the Italian struggle for freedom.
