Captured by the British, Joyce stood trial for treason. His claim of American citizenship was denied because he held a British passport. He was found guilty and hanged on January 3, 1946.

William Joyce was born in Brooklyn, NY. At the age of three, his family moved to Ireland. They remained there until Joyce turned 17, when they moved to London. Although he and his family claimed several times on various government forms that William was a "British subject by birth," this was not the case. Nor did he ever become a naturalized citizen.
