King George V (1865-1936) was known as 'The Sailor King' because he was in the Navy when his older brother Eddy suddenly died at age 27, leaving him heir to the throne. Eddy had been engaged to Mary of Teck; George and Mary married a year after Eddy's death. He became King in 1910 after the death of Edward VIII. He was a homebody who disliked going into 'society'; his primary hobbies were hunting and stamp collecting. A heavy smoker, he had lung problems for much of his later life.
