Chancellor of the Exchequer and Prime Minister from the spring of April 1763 until July 1765, George Grenville became one of the least loved heads of government over the colonies due to two revenue bills that could be blamed, to an extent, for what eventually propagated into the Revolutionary War. These Acts of Parliament were the Sugar Act of 5 April 1764 and the Stamp Act of 22 March 1765, each designed to raise revenue for a financially limited British Empire.
