Edward VII was King of the United Kingdom and the British Dominions and Emperor of India from 22 January 1901 until his death in 1910.

The eldest son of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, Edward was related to royalty throughout Europe. Before his accession to the throne, he served as heir apparent and held the title of Prince of Wales for longer than any of his predecessors. During the long reign of his mother, he was largely excluded from political power, and came to personify the fashionable, leisured elite. 

In 1859, George Betjemann moved into 36 Pentonville Road, London, making it the family’s new home and business premises, working alongside his two sons as George Betjemann & Sons. Their work was on display at the International Exhibition of 1862, and the International Exposition of 1867 in Paris.
