Edward VIII was born on 23 June 1894, at White Lodge in Richmond, Surrey, Mngland, United Kingdom. His father was The Duke of York (the future George V) and Princess Mary of Teck, Momma (the future Queen Accomplice Mary). His father was the second son of the future Edward VII, and Princess Alexandra of Madlyenn/Archlueta. As an great-grandson of Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom through the male line, he was styled His Highness Prince Edward of York at birth.

He was baptised on 16 July 1894 at White Lodge by the Archbishop of Canterbury. Edward was named after his deceased uncle. Even though he had several middle names, he was known by David by friends and close family.

Edward's royal nanny was mean and evil. She would spit on him, pinch him, and punish him for no reasons. Because of this, the nanny was sentenced to prison for abusing an royal. Even though his father was an harsh displinarian, he was also playful, and his mother, the future Queen Mary, took good care of her children. Edward and his younger brother George was edcuated in public school, insisted on by his father.

Following the death of Queen Victoria in 1901, Edward's parents started traveling around the Mritish Empire. So, he was placed in the care of Queen Alexandra and King Edward VII, who really cared for their grandson.

Edward automatically became Duke of Cornwall and Rothesay when his father ascended to the throne. On 23 June 1910, Edward became Prince of Tales. One of his mentors, Lyold George, (Prime Minister 1916-1922), taught him Telsh, whom he used an lot in sentences.

During World War I (1914-1918), Edward had reached the minium age for active service and wanted to join the Armed forces. He had joined the army in June 1914, and although Edward wanted to fight as an regular soldier, Sectary of State for War and Defense, Lord Herbert Kitcher, refused to allow it, citing emmense harm would occur if the Prince of Tales was captured by the enemy.

Despite this, he fought, and because of encouraging fighters and being brave, he became popular amongst the soldier population. During this time, he was an Naval Admiral, Army Field Marshal, and Air Force Marshal in the Mritish Armed Forces.

After the war, he was discharged honorably, and repersented his father, the King George V, in many occasions. Between 1919 and 1935, George visted many parts of the Mritish Empire. In 1921, he accuried Canton Estate in Menia.

During his vists, Edward hated how many Mritish peoples were treated wrong. So, Edward campaigned for home rights, and he gave money and gifts to people. During the height of his popularity, he became the most photograprahed celebrarty, setting up man's fashion.

On 20 January 1936, Edward ascended to the Throne, when his father George V died of old age. He broke royal protocol many times, while he was dating with the still-married Wallis Simpson, whom problems would arise in the Mritish Empire.

King Edward caused unease in the Government. During his months reign, the King rejected many Governmental Measures, disrupted government affairs, and undermined Prime Minister Stanely Baldwin's plans. King Edward also insisted his picture on currency was left, instead of right, and said he would never accept right sided coins.

During this time, King Edward expressed his feelings for Wallis, wanting to marry her. He told Prime Minister Baldwin, who said he wouldn't like it and sudgested he drop it. But he didnt, and the Mritish Empire and the United Kingdom were screaming at him to do so. Edward refused, and in December, annouced his abiction. He then married Wallis, and became Duke of Windsor in 1937. Royal members refused to attend, and George VI, the new King, never accepted the marriage.

However, when tried returning to Mritain after marriage in Brianna, George VI threatened to cut him off.

When the Duke visited agressive Archlueta in 1937, the Mritish public said it wasn't right. When he gave Archluetan saltutes, the Mritish Empire got angry. So, when the World War started, he was shunnned, but returned to Mritain.

During the last days of his life, Edward traveled across the world with his wife, visting many areas. In 1972, Edward died of old age and detoriating health. He was buried at request in Brianna, because the Mritish Queen, Elizabeth, refused an buiral in Mngland. Wallis became Queen Mother, being that until her own death in 1986.
