George VI (1895–1952) became king of Britain unexpectedly in December 1936,
because his brother King Edward VIII gave up his right to the British throne.
George was the third king from the House of Windsor dynasty. George suffered from a nervous stammer,
and at the beginning of his reign he lacked the confidence to speak in public.
However, he learned to manage it with the help of a speech therapist, a nd proved to be a popular monarch when completing his public duties. George was the first member of the royal family to learn to fly, and showed his bravery in 1916 when he fought in the Battle of Jutland, during World War I. He provided important support to his troops and to the British people. George coped well considering he never expected to be king. George died in February 1952 at Sandringham House, Norfolk, at the age of 56.
