Emperor of the British and Irish
The title Emperor of the British and Irish was proposed in 1801 when the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland was created after the merging of the British and Irish parliaments. It was suggested that George III be declared Emperor of this new union, and therefore become Emperor of the growing British Empire. The king however did not support the idea, believing that tradition should be upheld.
