Coronation celebrations for King George V, Market Place, Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, 1911. King George V (1910-1936) was born on 3rd June 1865, the second son of Edward VII and Alexandra. His early education was somewhat insignificant as compared to that of the heir apparent, his older brother Albert. George chose the career of professional naval officer and served competently until Albert died in 1892, upon which George assumed the role of the heir apparent. He married Mary of Teck (affectionately called May) in 1893, who bore him four sons and one daughter. The coronation of King George V took place at Westminster Abbey on 22 June 1911. He died the year after his silver jubilee after a series of debilitating attacks of bronchitis, on January 20, 1936.
