One thought on “King George V

  1. You place photos of George V (paternal grandfather of queen Elizabeth II) and next his cousin Nicholas II.

    George V suggested to agree that Nicholas II come in exile in the United Kingdom. The british prime minister had to give his approval. He did but…

    But he told the king: « Nicholas II’s exile in the UK may cause huge strikes in the United Kingdom in solidarity with the Soviet people, you king may lose your throne and I, prime minister, may not be able to help you keep your throne ».

    So George V preferred keeping his job and gave up the idea, giving up Nicholas II and his family to its fate.

    It is rumored that George V’s life was ended by euthanasia because he was very ill and nobody knew how to cure him.
