3.Excelled in the career that she chose anyway. 

4.  Refurbished a 100 yr old Dropship and made it voyage worthy in less than a week. 

5. Was strong enough to demand to be loved the way she deserved to be loved. 

6. Created bullets and bombs out of leftover gun powder and hydrazine. 

7. Was shot but still managed to walk Jasper and Clarke through hot wiring the Dropship. 

8. Endured surgery with no anesthesia. 

9. Figured out the radio signal coming from Mt. Weather was on a loop. 

10. Saved herself from ALIE (creating the device that would later save Abby as well).

11. Survived being drilled in Mt. Weather. 

12. Figured out how to launch a rocket into space

13. Saved herself from catastrophic brain damage

[3/10] Monarchs - King George VI of the United Kingdom (December 11, 1936 – February 6, 1952)

George VI (Albert Frederick Arthur George) was King of the United Kingdom and the Dominions of the British Commonwealth from 11 December 1936 until his death. He was the last Emperor of India and the first Head of the Commonwealth.

Known publicly as Albert until his accession, and “Bertie” among his family and close friends, George VI was born in the reign of his great-grandmother Queen Victoria, and was named after his great-grandfather Albert, Prince Consort. As the second son of King George V, he was not expected to inherit the throne and spent his early life in the shadow of his elder brother, Edward. He attended naval college as a teenager, and served in the Royal Navy and Royal Air Force during the First World War. In 1920, he was made Duke of York. He married Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon in 1923 and they had two daughters, Elizabeth and Margaret. In the mid-1920s, he had speech therapy for a stammer, which he never fully overcame.

George’s elder brother ascended the throne as Edward VIII upon the death of their father in 1936. However, later that year Edward revealed his desire to marry divorced American socialite Wallis Simpson. British Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin advised Edward that for political and religious reasons he could not marry a divorced woman and remain king. Edward abdicated to marry Simpson, and George ascended the throne as the third monarch of the House of Windsor.

During George’s reign, the break-up of the British Empire and its transition into the Commonwealth of Nations accelerated. The parliament of the Irish Free State removed direct mention of the monarch from the country’s constitution on the day of his accession. The following year, a new Irish constitution changed the name of the state to Ireland and established the office of President. From 1939, the Empire and Commonwealth – except Ireland – was at war with Nazi Germany. War with Italy and Japan followed in 1940 and 1941, respectively. Though Britain and its allies were ultimately victorious in 1945, the United States and the Soviet Union rose as pre-eminent world powers and the British Empire declined. After the independence of India and Pakistan in 1947, George remained king of both countries, but relinquished the title of Emperor of India in June 1948. Ireland formally declared itself a republic and left the Commonwealth in 1949, and India became a republic within the Commonwealth the following year. George adopted the new title of Head of the Commonwealth. He was beset by health problems in the later years of his reign. He was succeeded by his eldest daughter, Elizabeth II. (x)

Queen Letizia during her visit to the Cervantes Classroom at the Cheikh Anta Diop Campus of the University of Dakar on the second day of her Cooperation Visit to Senegal. During her visit, the Queen was informed of the work of the Cervantes Institute in Senegal and me with Spanish teachers and students. 

Some of the students who are studying Spanish at the University also put on a small performance of a fragment of Don Quixote for Queen Letizia. (12th of December 2017)
