About this work
William has lost his stirrups and his crown as he rides over geese wearing coronets. He rides past an inn named after John Bull who stands in the doorway as a turnpike keeper. The two men who follow are Hume and O'Connell. Behind a barrier stand the Radical members for Westminster. Satire on the aftermath of William IV's dramatic dissolution of parliament on 22 April 1831
