Synopsis / Plot
In 1783, the English Parliament is led by the coalition of Charles James Fox and Lord North. King George III, who dislikes them, is pleased when they begin to lose power and decides to install William Pitt, the Younger as prime minister. Pitt, whose famous father, the Earl of Chatham, was an important statesman, is only twenty-four years old, however, and his fellow politicians refuse to take him seriously. Pitt is nonetheless determined to rid Parliament of corruption and restore England as a major world power, and so forces a general election. After Pitt is overwhelmingly supported by the general populace, he is installed in 10 Downing Street and works hard to promote reform, including strengthening England's Navy. Meanwhile, in France, Napoleon Bonaparte studies at military school.
