Nineteenth-century History

Video of King George V of Great Britain

In continuing with interesting old videos of European monarchs of the late nineteenth/early twentieth century, I have posted a video of the Duke of York (later King George V of Great Britain). This is a longer video than the last, but nevertheless interesting. The video is from 1901. I find it quite fascinated to watch these old videos knowing that they were filmed over a century ago.

Note: If you cannot view the video above, you need to download a browser which supports the latest HTML 5 standards. Firefox is a good and free choice. You can also download the video here.
