That looks like a good candidate. I don't understand the queen dowager bit. George V married her (his dead brother's fiance) then became King so she became Queen? Must have got along they had six kids, although there was no TV yet. But when George V died she didn't rule, their son took over so she was demoted from queen to kingmother or dowager queen?

The rules of succession, aka 'who gets what' baffle me, so I defer to Wiki:

Quote:
Mary of Teck (Victoria Mary Augusta Louise Olga Pauline Claudine Agnes; 26 May 1867 – 24 March 1953) was Queen consort of the United Kingdom and the British Dominions and Empress consort of India as the wife of King George V.

Although technically a princess of Teck, in the Kingdom of Württemberg, she was born and raised in the United Kingdom. Her parents were Francis, Duke of Teck, who was of German extraction, and Princess Mary Adelaide of Cambridge, who was a granddaughter of King George III. She was informally known as "May", after her birth month.

At the age of 24, she was betrothed to her second cousin once removed Prince Albert Victor, Duke of Clarence and Avondale, the eldest son of the Prince of Wales, but six weeks after the announcement of the engagement, he died unexpectedly during an influenza pandemic. The following year, she became engaged to Albert Victor's next surviving brother, George, who subsequently became king. Before her husband's accession, she was successively Duchess of York, Duchess of Cornwall, and Princess of Wales.

As queen consort from 1910, she supported her husband through the First World War, his ill health, and major political changes arising from the aftermath of the war. After George's death in 1936, she became queen mother when her eldest son, Edward VIII, ascended the throne, but to her dismay, he abdicated later the same year in order to marry twice-divorced American socialite Wallis Simpson. She supported her second son, George VI, until his death in 1952. She died the following year, during the reign of her granddaughter Elizabeth II, who had not yet been crowned.
Wiki

Admittedly the above is more an explanation of what happened and less of why it happened.

That consort business keeps confusing the issue.
Hey, if you have your heart set on the latest Chevy pickup but before you can get the money together a new model comes out, love the one you're with.

According to this article in Readers Digest(who have been wrong before) this is the line of succession.

1. Prince Charles
2. Prince William
3. Prince George
4. Princess Charlotte
5. Prince Louis

And this article says...

Male royals have traditionally had precedence over their sisters when it comes to inheriting the crown. But thanks to the Succession of the Crown Act in 2013, a female child can officially maintain her place in line for succession, no matter the gender of her younger sibling or siblings.
That spells good news for Princess Charlotte, who is currently fourth in line for the throne. She may not be the youngest anymore, but her status for the crown doesn’t change—even though she now has a little brother, age takes precedence over gender for the first time in royal succession history.

That pic at the lower right corner . . . the camper/truck-limo combo monstrosity.

1. Why? WHY? Who is going to go camping in that ridiculous thing? You'll never find a KOA camping space big enough to hold it, and you're sure as hell not going off-road/four-wheeling in it.

2. That abomination is either a "cammo" or a "limper." Imma go with item the second, because it's as lame as it could possibly be.

Clearly, some people got too much damned time AND money. And not a goddamned brain in their heads.

Nobody around even in the middle of the day?
I was there in 1966 and they sure had recovered by then!

As I understand it the tried to determine which brand/model got the most speeding tickets
and if the people driving those brand/model rides had a speeding ticket in the last 7 years. Poorly done.

Ever driven a WRX? All-wheel drive & low center of gravity-- feels like you're vacuumed to the road. Subaru WRX guys have an enthusiastic modding community, they get c r a z y HP out of those little 4-cylinder engines.
