King George VI was the father of Queen Elizabeth II and ruled the United Kingdom from 1936 until his death in 1952. He was born on December 14, 1895, and was the second son of King George V. George VI became king unexpectedly after his brother, King Edward VIII, abdicated the throne in 1936. He was known for his integrity and his support of the British people during World War II.

He gave many speeches during the war, including the famous “We Shall Fight on the Beaches” speech in 1940. Despite suffering from a stutter, King George VI was able to overcome his speech impediment with the help of a speech therapist, Lionel Logue. Their relationship was the subject of the 2010 movie “The Kings Speech.”

King George died on February 6th 1952, at the age of 56, and was succeeded by his daughter Queen Elizabeth II. King George VI was the younger brother of King Edward VIII and became king after Edwards abdication in 1936. He was known for his steadiness and sense of duty, especially during World War II when he worked to boost morale in Britain.

King Edward VIII , as mentioned before, became king in 1936 after his fathers death but abdicated the throne later that year in order to marry Wallis Simpson, a divorced American woman. He was known for his charm and popularity, but his decision to abdicate caused controversy and disappointment among the British public and government.

After his abdication, he was given the title Duke of Windsor and he and his wife lived in France. He had a controversial past, including his sympathy for the Nazi regime, which caused further public debate and disapproval. Edward VIII passed away in 1972.
