Watch Edward the King
- 1 Season
"Edward the King" (1975), known as "Edward the Seventh" in England, was a TV drama series. It had been based on the biography of Edward VII (1841 - 1910) of England by Philip Magnus. Despite the title, only the last three episodes covered Edward's reign, as he did not inherit the throne until he was nearly 60 years old. He was the oldest son of Queen Victoria who, according to the series, never saw him as capable or intelligent and thus gave him very little responsibility - despite the fact that he wanted it. Even after he becomes King, he still had trouble getting people to take him seriously.
