#She was an unexpected heir to the throne
For many of us, Queen Elizabeth was the only British monarch we have ever known. In an unprecedented twist of fate, Elizabeth ascended the throne. When Queen Elizabeth II was born in 1926, her father, George VI. not yet a king. His father George V ruled the kingdom and had only been on the throne since 1910. George had two sons, Edward VIII and George VI, meaning they both preceded Elizabeth in the line of succession.
So interesting and extraordinary was the fact that the British Queen acceded to the throne by accident
Everyone was very shocked when Edward abdicated after less than a year as king. This made him the first monarch in history to do so voluntarily. Then he fell in love with an American woman named Wallis Simpson and married her. The royal family was unwilling to make such a break with tradition. Instead of leaving his beloved, Edward left the monarchy and with it the throne.
Because of this, the British Queen ruled the kingdom
This meant that George VI. became king much earlier than expected and remained on the throne until his death in 1952. He had no son. Because of this, his daughter, 25-year-old Elizabeth, became the queen.
