The British Line Of Succession To The Throne
The Abdication set the royal line down a new path, one that was not anticipated. Before we look at those in the line of succession, let's review the past royals including those involved in The Abdication.
Queen Victoria ruled Great Britain from 1937 to 1901 (over 60 years)! The Edwardian Era was from 1901 to 1910 under King Edward VII. Then came King George V from 1910 to 1936. His son ruled as Edward the VIII for only 327 days until as mentioned, he abdicated. His brother then assumed the throne as King George VI. He ruled until 1952. Queen Elizabeth is close to 70 years as monarch. To hear about the current line of succession, please watch the video above.
