England's King George III would never have been allowed to interact with the public through something as unfiltered as Facebook. Despite presiding over the British Empire during both the Seven Years' War against France and the Revolutionary War in the U.S., George III is best known for his crippling mental illness. In the latter years of his reign, the raving monarch was often bound in a straitjacket and chained to a chair. At the time, the source of his madness was unknown, although modern medicine has provided possible insight. Doctors revisited his medical records in the 1970s and concluded he might have suffered from a rare blood disorder called porphyria. In 2004, scientists discovered high levels of arsenic in his hair sample; arsenic has been known to trigger porphyria.
