Richard Warren (1731–1797) was the most sought-after society doctor of his time. His popularity was the result of his great talent rather than his connections, as he went to Cambridge University without any financial support and suffered prejudice as the son of a Tory. Warren was appointed physician to George III in 1762, who he attended during his episodes of insanity. Warren’s annual income of £9,000 exceeded anything previously earned from the practice of medicine in Britain.
