George V reigned from 1910 until his death in 1936. He was succeeded by his eldest son, Edward VIII, but after less than a year, Edward abdicated so he could marry American divorcee Wallis Simpson. He was succeeded by his younger brother, Albert, who took the reign name of George VI.

King George VI reigned until his death in 1952; he was recently brought to life in the Oscar-winning film The King’s Speech.
