Greatest Love Stories: Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson

Is there a king willing to give up his kingdom to marry the woman he loves?

It might sound like a fairy tale, but a King of England once abdicated as it was the only way he could marry for love.

King Edward VIII married American socialite Wallis Simpson despite much of his country against it. It was unthinkable then for a king to marry a divorcee who has two living ex-husbands.

This is the story that made many people believe in love again.
