Prince George of Denmark, Duke of Cumberland (1653-1708), Consort of Queen Anne; son of King Frederick III of Denmark and Norway and Sophie Amalie of Brunswick-Lüneburg

Sitter in 34 portraits
The second son of Frederick III, King of Demark, George married Princess Anne in 1683. There was not much affection for George in England: he was widely held to be lazy, incompetent, hypocritical, and to speak poor English. Anne became Queen of England in 1702, but George was not made King. He was given charge of the Admiralty but had little skill. This was made worse by the chronic asthma which eventually killed him.
