Tapestry

William IV was King of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and King of Hanover from 26 June 1830 until his death in 1837. At the time of this trial he had been reigning for just under 3 years. The word on the form should have been 'third' or 'fourth', not 'King'. An easy mistake.

Bruce Laidlaw

I read it as "third" :-)
