    Parallel Transformations: Georgium Sidus to Uranus and Political Events during the Romantic Age
    ...
    William King, BehetrinB Mohammed, Allen
    Introduction
    Rich in culture, arts, and discovery, the Romantic Period was a time of revolutions in politics, science, and literature, uncharacteristic by those of previous generations. Changes, especially those rooted in Great Britain between the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, flourished throughout Europe and the Western World. Of the many watershed moments, perhaps the only one of its magnitude during the period, was the discovery of Uranus on March 13, 1781 by self-taught Hanoverian astronomer Friedrich William Herschel .
    ...
    William Herschel’s discovery was one of the most significant in historical times. Richard Holmes, in his book "The Age of Wonder, states that “He [Maskelyne] was also aware that Banks regarded this (the discovery) as a crucial moment in his presidency, and in the fostering of good relations between the Royal Society and the Crown. King George III was particularly fascinated by stars, and particularly keen to outdo the French” (Holmes 99).
    The scientific and political implications of the discovery of Uranus were tremendous in their ability to place Britain at the head of the international scientific community. The discovery sparked interest in the rest of the world as catalogues of nebulae and comets and double stars arose, many discovered by William Hershel himself. This allowed Great Britain the opportunity to lead the world in astronomical science. The societal reaches of Uranus were also impressive. Evidenced in poems such as John Keat’s On First Looking into Chapman’s Homer and Lydia Howard Sigourney’s Georgian Planet , inspiration and unprecedented curiosity reached not only scientists and politicians, but commoners as well.
    
    Nevertheless, with great popularity came great controversy and the planet fell victim to notoriously fickle name changes. Throughout the Romantic Period, Great Britain’s wars, whether at home or abroad, had an unexpected affect on the discovery of Uranus. Corresponding almost exactly to the politics of Britain, popularity for King George III, and the discontent of the citizens of Great Britain, Hershel’s discovery saw a transformation from the monarch-loving name, Georgium Sidus to the platonic, yet heroic and traditional name Uranus. The far reaching political influences of the Romantic Era not only witnessed revolutions and changes of alliance, but altered the name of the first planet discovered in historical times.
    Because there was always confusion as to what the real name of the planet was, whether it be Georgium Sidus, Hershel, or Uranus, in 1850, the HM Nautical Almanac Office declared Uranus as the official name for the planet previously known as Georgium Sidus, setting the stage for the international adoption of the planet’s accepted name. Eventually, even Britain's scientific community and the loyal followers of King George III came to adopt Uranus as the official name of the planet.
