King George VI of England, formal photo portrait, circa 1940-1946.jpg

George  VI (Albert Frederick Arthur George; 14 December 1895 – 6 February 1952) was King of the United Kingdom and the Dominions of the British Commonwealth from 11 December 1936  until his death. He was the last Emperor of India and the first Head of the Commonwealth.

As the second son of King George V, he was not expected to inherit  the throne and spent his early life in the shadow of his elder brother, Edward. He served in the Royal Navy and Royal Air Force during the First World War, and after it took on the usual  round of public engagements. He married Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon in 1923 and they had  two daughters, Elizabeth and Margaret.

George's elder brother ascended the throne as Edward VIII upon the death of  their father in 1936. However, later that year Edward revealed his desire to  marry the divorced American socialite Wallis Simpson. British Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin advised Edward that for  political and religious reasons he could not marry a divorced woman and remain  king. Edward abdicated in order to marry, and George  ascended the throne as the third monarch of the House of Windsor.

During George's reign the break-up of the British Empire and its transition into the Commonwealth of Nations accelerated. The  parliament of the Irish Free State removed direct mention of the monarch from the country's constitution on the day of his  accession. Within three years, the Empire and Commonwealth, except the Irish  Free State, was at war with Nazi Germany. In the next two years, war with Italy and Japan followed. Though Britain and its allies were ultimately  victorious, the United States and the Soviet Union rose as pre-eminent world powers and the British Empire declined.  After the independence of India and Pakistan in 1947,  George remained as king of both countries, but the title Emperor of India  was abandoned in June 1948. Ireland formally declared itself a republic and left  the Commonwealth in 1949, and India became a republic within the Commonwealth  the following year. George adopted the new title of Head of the Commonwealth. He  was beset by health problems in the later years of his reign. His elder  daughter, Elizabeth, succeeded him.

A blue field with the Union Flag in the upper hoist quarter, a large white seven-pointed star in the lower hoist quarter, and constellation of five white stars in the fly – one small five-pointed star and four, larger, seven-pointed stars.Australia,  officially the Commonwealth of Australia, is a country comprising the  mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands. It is the world's sixth-largest country by total area.  Neighbouring countries include Indonesia, East Timor and Papua New Guinea to the north; the Solomon Islands and Vanuatu to the north-east; and New Zealand to the south-east.

For at least 40,000 years before the first British settlement in the late 18th century,  Australia was inhabited by indigenous Australians, who spoke languages  grouped into roughly 250 language groups. After the European  discovery of the continent by Dutch explorers in 1606, Australia's eastern  half was claimed by Great Britain in 1770 and initially settled  through penal transportation to the colony of New South Wales from 26 January 1788. The  population grew steadily in subsequent decades; the continent was explored and  an additional five self-governing crown colonies were established.

On 1 January 1901, the six colonies federated, forming the Commonwealth of  Australia. Since Federation, Australia has maintained a stable liberal democratic political system that  functions as a federal parliamentary democracy and constitutional monarchy comprising six states and several territories. The  population of 23.6 million[5]  is highly urbanised and heavily concentrated in the eastern states and on the coast.

Australia is a developed country and one of the wealthiest in  the world, with the world's 12th-largest economy. In 2012 Australia  had the world's fifth-highest per capita income. Australia's  military expenditure is the world's 13th-largest. With the second-highest human development index globally,  Australia ranks highly in many international comparisons  of national performance, such as quality of life, health, education, economic freedom, and the protection of civil liberties and political rights. Australia  is a member of the United Nations, G20, Commonwealth of Nations, ANZUS, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development  (OECD), World Trade Organization, Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation, and the Pacific Islands Forum.
