Lord North in The Two GeorgesEdit

Lord North was one of several people depicted in Thomas Gainsborough painting, The Two Georges. At the time, he held the position of Chancellor of the Exchequer, and so was very important in the British government. He went on to succeed William Pitt, the Prime Minister, another figure appearing in the painting.[1]
