On This Date in TWISTED-HISTORY.com! in 1820, Britain’s King George III died at Windsor Castle. The official cause of death was a combination of ‘old age’ and ‘insanity’. The official coroner’s report stated that Georgie III didn’t just have the typical insanity normally associated with the British monarchy, but his bat-shit craziness had grown to a new and unreached pinnacle of pillow-biting paranoia that would only be exceeded by the Russian monarchy, what with the Tsars indiscriminately killing everybody and everything. George’s insistence that a Dark Duck of Doom was nesting on his head and making all the state decisions was considered almost normal, until he started interrogating the drakes and mallards at Windsor Castle and demanding they explain why he was only allowed to eat figgy pudding, especially since he hated figgy pudding. The suspicious wet duck tracks found in King George’s chambers on the day of his death was never fully investigated, but his son, King George IV, always insisted he loved figgy pudding every time it was served.

    You’re not pinning this on me! He was already dead when I found him!

    I swear by every figgy pudding I’ve ever eaten, he was already dead.
