Prince regent George[Edit]Edit

Prince George (Hugh Laurie) is a caricature of George IV of the United Kingdom and a very silly Prince. He is in the third series a kind of replacement of Lord Percy.

His personality seems to be a combination of those of Lord Percy and Queenie. He is childlike, bloated and selfish. Even the simplest things seem to trouble cost him. So, it took him a week to attract a suit. He trusts especially strong on his butler, Blackadder, to have it work for him to do so.

Prince George is also seen in a flashback in "Blackadder's Christmas Carrol".

General Melchett does not seem to realize how hopeless the first world war is for the soldiers in the trenches. He trusts completely in victory. There he remains far behind the front in his headquarters, he is the only character that the series survives.

A descendant of the Prince Regent George. He is a British army officer who serves at the front during the first world war. He studied at the University of Cambridge, just as Melchett.

George possesses virtually no skills that are required in the army. Also, he has no understanding of the inputs or coordinating an army. He has his high rank due to its pure social status. He is the subordinate of Captain Blackadder, and forms for him a constant source of annoyance. He is often not aware of what is happening around him. General Melchett is a friend of Georges family and knows him personally. Also George is utterly oblivious to the hopelessness of the trench war and refuses even to look like an offer to get away. So come he with BlackAdder and Baldrick the trenches should and probably killed.
