1749 George II’s display


FIRE-WORKES and ILLUMINATIONS on the River Thames Monday 15 May 1749

This is the famous fireworks display that George Frideric Handel composed his “Music for the Royal Fireworks”.

The firework display was for the benefit of King George II of Great Britain to celebrate the signing of the treaty at Aix la Chapelle in 1748 marking the end of the War of Austrian Succession. Unfortunately, during the display, one of the fireworks landed on the pavilion of the Temple of Peace, igniting the several thousand fireworks inside and killing three spectators.
