King George II meets Mozart

King George II meets Mozart

This is where King George waved to Mozart and his family.

Location: St James Park, London

Description: Here, King George III stopped his carriage with the young Queen Charlotte, to wave to the 9 year old Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The Mozart family was walking through St James Park among the deer.

Leopold's father boasted in a letter: Although we had on different clothes, they recognised us nevertheless and not only greeted us, but the King opened the window, leaned out and saluted us and especially our Master Wolfgang, nodding to us and waving his hand.

George III later infamously suffered from serious mental problems, as depicted gratuitously in The Madness of King George.
