the United States, where he received an enthusiastic welcome. President Buchanan and his official family extended to him a grand entertainment at the national capital, and the cities which he visited vied with one another in paying him high honors. The courtesies so generously extended to him laid the foundation for the strong friendship which he always afterwards manifested for Americans. After this trip he travelled in Germany, Italy, and the Holy Land. In 1863 he married the Princess Alexandra, daughter of Christian IV., King of Denmark, and after his marriage he made prolonged tours in many foreign countries, most notably in Egypt and Greece in 1869, and in British India in 1875-76. He has always been exceedingly fond of out-door sports and athletics in general, and has kept himself in close touch with his people. On the death of Queen Victoria, Jan. 22, 1901, he succeeded to the throne, and was formally proclaimed king and emperor at St. James's Palace, London, on the 24th.

In consequence of the insanity of George III., George, the Prince of Wales, was created by Parliament regent of the kingdom. The act for that purpose passed Feb. 5, 1811, and from that time until the death of his father, George was acting monarch.
