Historical background



George VI (14/12/1895-6/02/1952) is the youngest son of George V and Mary Treck. He is the brother of Edward VIII succeeded George V 20 January 1936, but is forced to abdicate on December 11 of that year because he had decided to marry Mrs Wallis Warfield Simpson, divorced twice, and because its Germanophilism strongly displeased the circles of power in England. George VI was crowned 12 May 1837. He has two daughters, Elizabeth and Margaret. During the Second World War, he became a symbol of British resistance against Nazism. After the war, he must approve in 1947 the independence of the Indian Empire, which after a horrible civil war, is divided to form India and Pakistan. He died of cancer in 1952.
