Edward Windsor / Edward VIII        r. 1936        (1894-1972)

 

Edward had succeeded

his father George V

just 11 months earlier.

 

But, as his affair

with the American

divorcee

Wallis Simpson

became public,

he was forced

to choose

between his throne

and his lover

and opted

to abdicate.

 

His coronation

never took place,

and the throne

went to

his younger brother,

who became

George VI.

 

The crisis

created political

and public divisions

and rocked

the monarchy.
