House of Windsor

The House of Windsor came into being in 1917. Until then the Royal Family had borne the name Saxe-Coburg-Gotha which had come to them through marriage in 1840. Amid a wave of anti-German feeling during the First World War, George V decided a change was needed, and, by adopting a new name, the Windsor dynasty was born.

Since then this royal house has produced four monarchs who have reigned over the subjects of Britain and the Commonwealth for 100 years. Both George V and George VI dedicated their lives to the service of their country, as has Her Majesty The Queen, the nation’s longest reigning monarch. From the devastation of the First World War and the break-up of the British Empire, through the Second World War and into the modern media age, the monarchs and members of the House of Windsor have remained ambassadors for British values and tradition at home and across the world.
