Rearden nice addition
, Queen Mary was certainly a piece of work wasn't she , as was George IV.
He was completely over bearing with all of his children. But could it be expected to be otherwise? He was not born heir, and as children he and his older brother were so wild, Queen Victoria was not pleased. His brother (and heir) Eddie, was dimwitted and his early demise likely made many breathe a sigh of relief.
The major tragedy that befell Bertie was that he was made to be right handed, when he was really left. He also had to wear leg braces as a child, and developed the the painful stutter (cover in the film that Colin Firth is in on the same subject). If I'm not mistaken his father even ridiculed his stutter.
