Who's Who - Royalty

King George V This sub-section of the Who's Who category of the site contains folio biographies of monarchs and their heirs who presided over nations at war from 1914-18.

Many were deprived of their crowns by the time war closed, as defeat and revolution gripped their countries.

Few emerged with their position even more secure, as did Britain's King George V.

More typical were abdications such as those by the German Kaiser and the Russian Tsar.
