Realms

King George V's reign over a unitary British Empire began in 1910, under the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, but many changes occurred before his death in 1936. Though the Irish Free State left the United Kingdom in 1922, the actual name of the kingdom was not changed until 1927, at which time the sovereign's title was changed accordingly. Under the Royal and Parliamentary Titles Act 1927, the monarch not only thereafter became separately the King of Ireland, he also became separately the king of all the Commonwealth realms, then including Australia, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa, and others; he had previously been monarch in, not of, those states, through a single Crown over the British Empire. As the situation continued to evolve under the Statute of Westminster, 1931, and other developments, George V became a shared monarch wearing multiple crowns. Until 1947, the king was also styled Emperor of India. Since 1949, the head of the House of Windsor is also Head of the Commonwealth of Nations, comprising most (but not all) parts of the former British Empire and some states that were never part of it.
