I am not too sure (and even doubt) that this child's play in some palace or other ever took place.
These were words bouncing around in my head the past few days, as Britain just remembered 100 years of entering the First World War - "the war to end all wars". Fact is, three first cousins threw their countries in the bloodiest, most bitter war, that has ever been seen. Either through pique, pride, prejudice - or some seriously bad counselling by vindictive, power hungry warmongers- remains for historians to decide. I am not an historian, merely a conveyor of thoughts, feelings and words.
King George V should not have been king. He had an elder brother who was the heir apparent, but that heir apparent died early in life and so it was that King George picked up the mantle - and led his nation into a bloody war. So - historically - had ever such a play ever have taken place, it is hardly likely that little George would have been involved.
To the historians and fact seekers please accept my apologies for the lack of historical accuracy.
