King George III’s brother convinced Lafayette to fight against Great Britain. In August 1775, Lafayette attended a dinner party at which Great Britain’s Duke of Gloucester, younger brother of King George III, was the guest of honor. The duke, who had been condemned by the king over his choice of a bride, hit back at his royal brother’s policies in the American colonies and praised the exploits of liberty loving Americans at the opening battles of the American Revolution at Lexington and Concord a fewmonths earlier. Lafayette, whose father died in 1759 fighting the British during the Seven Years War, received the inspiration he needed to strike back against the red coats.
