King George II of Great Britain, King of Great Britain and Ireland, the last monarch of the country to have been born outside Great Britain, became King of England on June 11, 1727, upon the death of his predecessor, Georg Ludwig, who was to become King George I, and reign immediately prior to George II.

George II remained King until his death, on October 25, 1760, having died of a ruptured aneurysm of the aorta while on the toilet.
