Edward VIII – the British king abdicated for love. Real men act worthy of admiration. But there is life Edward and the other side, shameful and ugly.
Familiarity with American Wallis Simpson was a landmark for the English king in every sense. His fiancee and her friend Emerald, the owner of a trendy salon, were members of the club, which fervently and enthusiastically discussed Germany and the new Fuhrer.
There admired the restoration of Germany after the defeat in the First world war. Was inspired by the actions of the ruler, who overcame a wild monstrous inflation and unemployment. Praise leader who raised the German ideology to a new level. It was a kind of fan club of Adolf Hitler.
I must say that Edward VIII had a love for Germany since childhood. Apparently made itself felt German roots and the frequent visits of Kaiser Wilhelm II. He knew the German language and to communicate with Hitler without an interpreter.
Knowing the attitude Wallis to the German leaders, Edward introduced his beloved with Ribbentrop. It is said that the actress and the German diplomat connected intimate relationship. In addition, Wallis regularly communicated with Otto von Bismarck with his wife and favorite architect of Hitler albert Speer. Let's say, a specific social circle for the wife of the king of Britain, though the former.
Adolf Hitler preparing for domination of Germany knew that he needed support in Europe and drew attention to Edward, as a man loyal to the Nazis. Developed a plan of his marriage to a German Princess, the granddaughter of Wilhelm II, but the king rejected any idea of marrying someone other than Wallis Simpson.
We all know the basic version of why Edward VIII abdicated the throne:
However, there is a second. British intelligence caught the Nazi sentiment of the current king, and had taken immediate action. Formally, it looked like a noble king in the name of love left the throne, as the Parliament did not allow him to marry the "American divorced ulcer". In fact, the British ruling elite were all taken to prevent to the throne of the king-Nazi.
Never came true dreams actress to become Queen, and Hitler's plans to win loyal supporter.
Many believe that renounced the king didn't want to put up with their lot and were planning to regain the throne with the help of Hitler. Which explains his trip to Germany after the wedding. Edward wanted to establish in England absolute monarchy, and abolished the Parliament. Given his attraction to Nazism, is meant to be a complete worship to the ideas of Adolf Hitler.
But this plan was not to be fulfilled, thanks to the insight of the Prime Minister of great Britain William Churchill and competent intelligence. The British government sent Edward and Wallis to COP to the Bahamas. In fact, Churchill secured country. To return from there the pair managed only after the Second world war.
It was the right decision. Was recently declassified some fragments of correspondence with Edward German relatives in times of war. The forsaken king urged Germany to bomb the British Isles to England agreed to a peace. A little strange state of mind. It is not surprising that the British government was hiding the letters.
It turns out that noble and beautiful love story is unseemly underside. In relationships, Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson was not only pull each other, but also the worship of fascism and ambitious plans. Looking at this pair from a different angle, doesn't want to admire them sad love story.
