Young King George lost his father in his childhood. But his tutor, who was also a friend of his Mother, Was like a father figure to him and taught him many things in his life. (It's also thought that George's tutor and his mom had an affair but it was never proven.)
King George was then crowned king soon after his grandfather, King George the second died. His wife was Princess Charlotte of Mecklenburg. He and his wife met on their wedding but had a fruitful and apparently happy marriage. They had 15 kids.
