Annotation Albert, the Duke of York, was a quiet young man second in line to the throne when he met Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, a beautiful and fun-loving young woman from an aristocratic Scottish family. Married in 1923, they expected to lead a life of genteel obscurity when they were suddenly thrust into the limelight in 1936 when Bertie's older brother, Edward VIII, created an international scandal when he abdicated to marry the twice-divorced American socialite Wallis Simpson. Shy, modest, and a habitual stutterer, Bert was crowned George VI just as his country faced the onslaught of World War II. With the help of his devoted wife, and their daughters Elizabeth and Margaret, Bertie was able to rise magnificently to the challenges of being king, and together they inspired a nation soon embroiled in a horrific world war.
