However, beginning with George I, the push for unification under a single monarch began. George, an English prince, sought to model his new kingdom after his home. He relied on contradicting peace agreements with both Castile to his west and France to his north to prevent either one from invading him. However, George later became involved in the crises of his brothers in the Wars of the English Succession. George and his son fought a losing war that resulted in war with France and loss of Sicilian possessions. Their descendants pointed to this loss of territory as a need for unification and by the time of John IV, all the territories in the Crown were either united under Aragon (mainland possessions) or in personal union (the islands and Sicily).
The independent Crown of Aragon met its end at the hands of Napoleon in the early 19th century. Aragonese relations fled to Sicily, where they were able to secure independence. Today Aragon is part of the Napoleonic Empire. The title King of Aragon is held by the emperor.
