King George I.
George I, king of Great Britain and Ireland from 1714 until 1727, is the subject of this 1746 engraving by Jacobus Houbraken. The image was based on an earlier oil portrait by Sir Godfrey Keller, who served as the Principal Painter in Ordinary at the royal court from 1689 until his death in 1723.
