Hi everybody! What was King George I-IV called?

My first mission on this forum is to hunt through the threads to see if there is any mention of nicknames for the British Kings of the House of Hanover.

So far I've found King George I was called Geordie Whelps because of his many mistresses. King George III was called Farmer George, or Mad King George.

The other Kings must have had nicknames, but they seem harder to trace. If anybody does know, I'd be grateful!

I never thought of that! I just read it as referring to the whelps his mistresses bore him. That extra point makes the joke even better. Well spotted! Thanks.
