King George VI
Early life
King George (Albert Frederick Arthur George) was born on
14 December 1895 at Sandringham in Norfolk.
He was the second son of the Duke of York, later George V.
His father, king Georg V, had six children.
His eldest son, Edward, was the next in line to be king.
Albert was only second child.
Early life
His youth was not easy.
Though affectionate with his mother, affection was not
always returned, and his father was harsh and critical.
His tutors forced him to write with his right hand, though
he was naturally left handed.
Albert developed a stammer around age 8, and suffered the
indignity of wearing leg braces to correct his knock knees.

In October 1919, Albert went up to Trinity College, Cambridge,
where he studied history, economics and civics for a year.
In 1920, he was created Duke of York and began to take on
royal duties.
His stammer, and his embarrassment over it, together with his
tendency to shyness, caused him to appear much less
impressive than his older brother, Edward.
However, he was physically active and enjoyed playing tennis.
He played at Wimbledon in the Men's Doubles with Louis Greig
in 1926
In 1926 he met for the first time since
childhood Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, the
youngest daughter of the Earl and Countess of
Strathmore and Kinghorne.
He became determined to marry her.
She rejected his proposal twice, in 1921 and
1922, reportedly because she was reluctant
to make the sacrifices necessary to become a
member of the royal family.

14th Earl of Strathmore.

Early reign
The growing likelihood of war in Europe
dominated the early reign of George VI.
George supported Prime Minister Neville
Chamberlain's policy of appeasement towards
Germany and Italy.
Feeling war was a possibility, King George and
Queen Elizabeth visited the United States in
June 1939, and forged a strong friendship
with President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

World War II
In September 1939, Germany invaded Poland,
violating the Munich Agreement, and war was
With the help of his speech therapist and his
wife, King George successfully made one of
the most important speeches of his life,
announcing to the citizens of Britain that the
country was at war.
The royal couple were resolved to stay in
London at Buckingham Palace, despite
intense German bombing raids.

World War II
When Churchill became Prime Minister, the
Royal Family were not fans, but soon the King
and Churchill developed a close and essential
relationship as Britain fought for its life.
Every Tuesday for four and a half years from
September 1940, the two men met privately
for lunch to discuss the war in secret and with
King George and Winston Churchill
World War II

Illness and death
During the post-war years, the stress of war
began to catch up with King George VI and his
health began to deteriorate rapidly.
Around this time, his daughter, Princess
Elizabeth, the presumptive heir, began to take
on some of his royal duties.
On the morning of February 6, 1952, at the
age of 56, George VI was discovered dead in

Despite his reluctance to be king, George VI was a
conscientious and dedicated sovereign who
assumed the throne at a time when public faith in
the monarchy was at an all-time low.
During his reign, George VI endured the hardships
of war and the transition from an empire to a
commonwealth of nations, and restored the
popularity of the British monarchy.
