George V (1865 – 1936) was King of the United Kingdom and the British Dominions, and Emperor of India, from 6 May 1910 until his death. The King's reign spanned the First World War. During this time he regularly visited the British and colonial troops in England and those serving on the Western Front. He had earlier represented his father King Edward VII at the opening of the Australian Parliament in May 1901 and had visited Adelaide as part of his visit to Australia.
