The Grenville ministry (1763–1765)
Wilkes and America

This chapter focuses on the tenure of George Grenville as British prime minister under George III. It discusses speculations regarding the resignation of Grenville's predecessor and suggests that the behaviour of George III had made the early months of the Grenville ministry a political stalemate. It highlights Grenville's accomplishments which include the prosecution of John Wilkes for deriding George III's speech and the passage of the American Stamp Act 1765.
