John Charles Francis Windsor
Birth: Jul. 12, 1905
Death: Jan. 18, 1919

English Royalty. Youngest son of King George V. and Queen Mary. His full name was John Charles Francis Windsor. When he was four he developed epilepsy, which became more acute with each passing year. He also suffered from autistic-like learning difficulties. In those times an epileptic was considered to be a shame to the family. The royal couple couldn't risk him having an epileptic fit in front of many people and so he lived from 1916 on at Wood Farm at Wolferton, Norfolk. Charlotte "Lalla" Bill, his nanny, cared for him there and put him safely out of the public eye. Queen Mary often visited him there and spent much time with him. She wasn't the inattentive mother as which history describes her. Her other children described her as very caring. After his thirteenth birthday the fits became more frequent and frightening. He died in the early morning hours following a severe fit. The parents immediately drove to Wood Farm when the news of his death reached them. He was buried three days later in a private ceremony. (bio by: Lutetia)
