Collection Historical Note

King Edward VII ruled over the United Kingdom and India from 1901 until his death in 1910. Edward was the eldest son of Queen Victoria and held the title of Heir Apparent and Prince of Wales for longer than any other official during his road to ascension. Edward was known as being moderately progressive for his time, as well as being nicknamed “Peacemaker” for his work improving relations with France. Unfortunately, this did not translate to Germany and tensions ran high. During his reign, Edward had many concerns regarding Germany and war. King Edward VII died on May 6th 1910, after a severe bout of bronchitis and a series of sudden heart attacks. Four years after his death, World War I commenced.
