A Selection of Manuscripts

300 years ago, Britain welcomed the arrival of the shy, German-born George I as King. To commemorate this event we've created searches in State Papers Online: Eighteenth Century, 1714-1782, to show you the breadth of coverage on George I, and giving you a glimpse of life at the very beginning of what would become 116 years of The Hanoverians.
