Edward VIII

Death of the youngest brother

Saturday Jan 18, 1919
Wood Farm, Sandringham, England, United Kingdom

Edward's youngest brother, Prince John, died at the age of 13 on 18 January 1919 after a severe epileptic seizure. Edward, who was 11 years older than John and had hardly known him, saw his death as "little more than a regrettable nuisance".
