THE REAL GEORGE III—by Allan Ramsay, 1757 “George III was in height about five feet ten inches and a half, and of a robust person. In his youth he was considered handsome. But his face and eyes were too prominent. His lips thick. His mouth large and wide. His face was red and of a deep copper colour” SOURCE; (John Brown, “Memoirs of George the Third, Late King of Great Britain”; 1820) Copper is a reddish brown color… This portrait is now erroneously titled “Portrait of an African” It was painted by Allan Ramsay in England, in 1757... Allan Ramsay first painted George in 1757, before he became king… Allan Ramsay was the official court painter for King George III... Eurocentricks and negros who don’t actually research portraiture tell us that this man is an African slave named “Olaudah Equiano” (pseudonym) Whether that is because of stupidity or laziness I do not know... Allan Ramsay—the official court painter for King George III, painted this portrait in England in 1757.... According to the “autobiography of Olaudah Equiano”, (Pseudepigrapha) he was a slave in Africa in 1757... That alone destroys any notion of this being a portrait of “Olaudah Equiano” Logically, the man in this portrait cannot be “Olaudah Equiano” When you research Allan Ramsay’s career you’ll discover that he never met—nor was he ever commissioned by George III or anybody else to paint a portrait of a “famous slave” named “Olaudah Equiano” Furthermore, according to the Emory university trans-Atlantic slave trade database, in 374 years, only 15 Africans were shipped to England, between the years 1776-1800... Again, logically, the man in this portrait cannot be “Olaudah Equiano” as there were NO Africans in England prior to 1776... Only Aristocratic and upper class families could afford commissioned portraits... The subject must be notable if a portrait was commissioned... Historically, portrait paintings have primarily memorialized the rich and powerful, not slaves or servants... A painted portrait was often seen as a luxury, they were painted for special occasions and important people... In a society dominated increasingly by secular leaders in powerful courts, images of opulently attired figures were a means to affirm the authority of important individuals... George III lived for 81 years and 239 days and reigned for 59 years and 96 days: both his life and his reign were longer than those of any of his predecessors and subsequent kings… While very popular at the start of his reign, by the mid-1770s George had lost the loyalty of revolutionary American colonists, though it has been estimated that as many as half of the colonists remained loyal… The grievances in the United States Declaration of Independence were presented as "repeated injuries and usurpations" that he had committed to establish an "absolute Tyranny" over the colonies…
