There has not been a Queen (or King) of England for over 300 years.

England is a part of, but not the same as, The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

In 1939 the British Monarch was King George VI and his wife and Queen Consort was Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon.

George VI became King on 11 December 1936 and reigned until his death on 6th February 1952.

He was succeeded by his daughter who became Queen Elizabeth II and Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon took the title "Queen Mother."
