Finally! - King George IV

British King George IV (1762-1830) did not like his wife, Caroline of Brunswick, at all, and has done everything in his power to end this marriage.

But his people liked Caroline and often shouted, "God Save the Queen." The king always answered to that: “God Save the Queen' - and may all your wives be like her!

When Napoleon Bonaparte died (in 1821), the king's adviser cheerfully informed him: "Sir, your bitterest enemy is dead!"

"Is she, by God!" - joyfully replied King George IV. “May she rest in peace.”

He was, of course, convinced that his queen finally died.
