I believe Albert II of the Belgians would count as the most recent -- and only reluctantly, after being ordered by the courts. Do you know of other in more recent history? Also, do you know more details about the allegations surrounding Max of Bavaria?
As stated, some kings in history (e.g. Charles II and William IV of Great Britain) openly acknowledged illegitimate children.
But not George IV
Kings that acknowledged their illegitimate issue:
D.Afonso Henriques, D.Sancho I, D.Afonso III, D.Diniz, D.Pedro I, D.Fernando, D.Jo„o I, D.Jo„o II, D.Jo„o IV, D.Pedro II, D.Jo„o V, D.Pedro IV/I of Brazil, D.Miguel.
Henri IV, Louis XIV, not sure about Louis XV
