On This Day In History
.
.
6 May 1910
.
.
King Edward VII died
.
.
◼ Edward generally smoked twenty cigarettes & twelve cigars a day. In 1907, an ulcer, a type of cancer affecting the skin next to his nose, was cured with radium.
.
◼ Towards the end of his life he suffered from bronchitis. He suffered a momentary loss of consciousness during a state visit to Berlin in February 1909.
.
◼ In March 1910, he was staying at Biarritz when he collapsed. He remained there to convalesce, while in London Asquith tried to get the Finance Bill passed. The King’s continued ill health was unreported & he attracted criticism for staying in France while political tensions were so high.
.
◼ On 27 April he returned to Buckingham Palace, still suffering from severe bronchitis. Alexandra returned from visiting her brother, King George I of Greece, in Corfu on 5 May.
.
.
◼ The following day, the King suffered several heart attacks, but refused to go to bed saying, “No, I shall not give in; I shall go on; I shall work to the end.”
.
.
◼ Between moments of faintness, his son the Prince of Wales (later King George V) told him that his horse, ‘Witch of the Air’, had won at Kempton Park that afternoon. The King replied, “Yes, I have heard of it. I am very glad”: his final words.
.
.
◼ At 11:30 p.m. he lost consciousness for the last time & was put to bed. He died 15 minutes later.
.
.
◼ Edward VII was buried at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, on 20 May 1910. As Barbara Tuchman noted in The Guns of August, his funeral marked “the greatest assemblage of royalty & rank ever gathered in one place &, of its kind, the last”.

“My on-going interest in today’s royals primarily stems from the portraits, jewels, residences & art of their ancestors. I don’t see as much grace, individuality, self-confidence/motivation - qualities that draw me in way faster than any tiara - in the younger generation that seemed to be almost ingrained from birth in some of the past royals. Overall, today’s royals are great and even though only a handle full can keep my attention, I do really enjoy the international events.“ - Submitted by Anonymous

Less than 24 hours after the appointments were made, Saudi Arabia held a ‘pledge of allegiance’ gathering at Riyadh’s Governance Palace to welcome the Kingdom’s new Crown Prince and Deputy Crown Prince. A traditional sort of swearing in ceremony, the event is also a venue for Saudi watchers to glean internal family dynamic. They closely watched the interactions between princes and the positioning of various officials. Notable at Wednesday night’s ceremony were the appearances of Princes Muqrin and Prince Miteb. Prince Muqrin had been Crown Prince, before being relieved of his post on Wednesday morning. Prince Miteb, a son of the former King Abdullah, had once been a candidate for the Crown himself but has since moved out of the spotlight. Their presence was seen as an indication that no one will contest the leadership changes.
