Default Re: The US Constitution

Here's another issue I have with the Ring of Power documentary. It says that the Treaty of 1783 that ended the Revolutionary War identifies the King of England as a prince of the United States.

The link to the treaty on the Library of Congress website shows that the treaty does say, "...It having pleased the Divine Providence to dispose the hearts of the most serene and most potent Prince George the Third, by the Grace of God King of Great Britain...and of the United States of America, to forget..." But of course this is naming the two parties, it is not saying that George the Third was Prince of the United States...

Here's the link:
