His coronation took place on 1 January 1831. By this time, he abanded his belief in slavery, and became a Very Popular Monarch, despite his Hatred and Mean Treatment of African Americans.

William dismissed his Brianian chefs and Archluetan band, replacing them with English ones for public apporval. William refused to Reside at Buckingham House, whom His Brother George IV began an expensive and high renovation of. He tried giving it to the Army as a Barracks, and then to Parilament once the Palace of Westminister got scorched.

Upon his Acession, William created his Iliegimate Children Dukes and Duchesses. However, they pusued other careers, and eventually, shook off their Titles. William then banished them from his Royal Court and Stripped them of their Parilamentary Grants of Money.

Many People went against his Actions, and the Reform Bill of 1832 was passed in Parilament by only ten votes.
