George Grenville was born on the 4th of October 1712 and ended his life journey after 58 years of living on the 13th of November 1770. He was a Prime Minister of Great Britain where he served as a Political member of Whig Party. He was one of the few prime ministers who was never given a title of nobility.

Bute introduced the Cider Tax After the signing of the Peace of Paris, in an attempt to pay off the national debt. Grenville spoke in favor of the duty, earning himself the ridicule of the Commons. Also, he was included in the riots that occurred in opposition to the tax. Bute asked Grenville to take over as Prime Minister on the 16th of April 1763. Grenville was Surprised but accepted even though Bute had appointed most of his cabinet member.
