King Edward VII

Professor Vernon Bogdanor FBA CBE


Download the lecture video here

Edward VII had an instinctive understanding of the human side of monarchy. Both at home and abroad, he sought to conciliate, and was known as Edward the Peacemaker. He helped to create the good feeling with France which prepared the way for the Entente Cordiale of 1904. At home he faced a constitutional crisis when the House of Lords rejected the budget in 1909. The crisis remained unresolved at Edward’s death in 1910.
