Royal Baby Names
In a scandal heard around the world, King Edward VIII (born June 23, 1894) famously gave up the British throne after less than a year, in 1936, to marry his lover, twice-divorced American socialite Wallis Simpson. His abdication—to this day, the only voluntary one by a British monarch—made his brother George VI the new king, which paved the way for George’s daughter Elizabeth to be crowned queen in 1952. After Edward married Simpson in 1937, he took the title Duke of Windsor and led a jet-setting life with his new wife.
