King Edward VII: An Appreciation

Born Albert Edward, as a young man he had a reputation as a playboy prince, embroiled in scandals, and was consequently kept at arm’s length from matters of state. For all his follies, he was popular at home and abroad and upon his accession to the throne in 1901 he surpassed all expectations, proving himself able and ending British isolationism. ¬†Through his nephews and nieces, brothers- and sons-in-law, Edward VII was related to almost every monarch on the continent: he was known as “the Uncle of Europe.”
