KIng George was neither a loyalist nor a patriot. The term patriot, as used, refer to a person who was in favor of the Colonies in revolt, and a loyalist was loyal to the English Crown. King George was the embodiment of the Crown; he was the subject of the loyalty.

Traitors are only traitors to the side they are not working for. Benedict Arnold, for example, is generally spoken of as a traitor by Americans even though he was loyal to the British. Washington worked for the British in his early military career and would in all likelihood sworn some oath to the British ruler at that time. It is doubtful that he ever rescinded that oath officially. He would be a traitor to his British responsibilities.

First, I think you need an understanding of the terms patriots and loyalists. A patriot was a person who fought or supported the cause against the British crown. A loyalist was a person who remained loyal to the King. Hence the term loyalists. Washington was the commander of American forces against the British. Therefore, he was a patriot. In his early 20's he had been a British officer in the French and Indian war, but this only gave him the experience he needed to command the patriots cause against the British. He was the first President in 1789.

He was definitely a patriot and not a loyalist. Loyalists were people who remained loyal to the king after independence was declared.
