 The Royal House of Windsor was founded in 1917, by royal proclamation of the Queen’s grandfather, King George V. The name was adopted as the new British Royal Family’s official name replacing that of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha. This was due in the main to anti German feeling which was very much in evidence in Great Britain during World War I. Windsor remains the family name of the current British Royal Family.

The current head of the House of Windsor is her majesty Queen Elizabeth II, who ascended to the throne in 1952 and was crowned at the first televised coronation in 1953.
