George (German:Georg; 8 August 1832 – 15 October 1904) was a King of Saxony of the House of Wettin. George was born in the Saxon capital Dresden. He was the second son of King John of Saxony (1801-1873) and his wife Princess Amalie Auguste of Bavaria (1801-1877), daughter of King Maximilian I Joseph of Bavaria (1756-1825). George married the Infanta Maria Anna of Portugal (1843-1884), the eldest surviving daughter of Queen Maria II of Portugal (1819-1853) and her consort Prince Ferdinand of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha-Koháry (1816-1885). He died in Pillnitz and was succeeded by his eldest son Frederick Augustus III of Saxony (1865-1932), who was deposed in 1918.

Eight children were born of George and Maria Anna's marriage:
