On December 11, 1936, Edward VIII, who reigned as King of United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and Emperor of India, abdicated after reigning for only 326 days in order to marry the woman he truly loved, the two-time American divorcee Wallis Warfield Simpson. "I have found it impossible to carry the heavy burden of responsibility and to discharge my duties as king as I would wish to do without the help and support of the woman I love," he explained.

Did he lived into oblivion? Here’s the story of what happened to Edward VIII after he abandoned the throne of Great Britain for love.
