George Iv 16 Fleet St It is somewhat surprising that a number of pubs have been named after this king. When George III died his son the Prince Regent ascended to the throne as George IV (1762 - 1830). He was a 'dedicated follower of fashion' and exuded both charm and culture so he earned the title 'the first gentleman of England'. However, he was not a particularly popular monarch and did not provide leadership for his subjects. 'His ministers found his behaviour selfish, unreliable and irresponsible'. George IV ruled from 1820 to 1830. This pub name is how the GEORGE IV was labelled on the Board of Health map of 1851.
