Line of Succession Between Princess Charlotte and Queen Victoria
 
Can anyone lay out the British line of succession past the children of King George III in about 1818? This was the time between the death of Princess Charlotte of Wales (1817) and the future Queen Victoria (1819). I know that after Charlotte would have been the other sons of King George III, but what about after them?

When Charlotte died, George III was still alive but there was a regency. George III, Then George IV, Prince Frederick Duke of York. The Duke of York dies before George IV , Prince William Duke of Clarence future William IV then Victoria's Father Prince Edward Duke of Kent.

William IV has 2 legitimate daughters that die as babies. Edward dies after Victoria's birth so the throne goes through the 2 George's to William to Victoria. Prince Ernest August who became King of Hanover would have been next if something happened to Victoria before she had children.

After George III's children, the next in the succession would have been George's siblings and nephews/nieces.

First his nephew, Prince William, Duke of Gloucester and Edinburgh, then William's sister, Sophia.

Next would have been Charles II of Brunswick then his brother William of Brunswick (also nephews of George III).

Then William of Wurttemberg and his children.

George III's grandchildren stood before his siblings and their families.

George III's grandchildren weren't born until after 1817.

Thank you @Ish. Yes, I was asking after the (then living) descendants of George III
