The Dutch East India Company (Vereenigde Oost-Indische Compagnie or VOC in Dutch, literally "United East Indian Company")   was a chartered company established in 1602, when the States-General of   the Netherlands granted it a 21-year monopoly to carry out colonial   activities in Asia. It was the first multinational corporation in the   world and the first company to issue stock. It was also arguably the   world's first megacorporation, possessing quasi-governmental powers,   including the ability to wage war, imprison and execute convicts,   negotiate treaties, coin money, and establish colonies.


George VI (Albert Frederick Arthur George; 14 December 1895 – 6 February 1952)   was King of the United Kingdom and the British Dominions from 11   December 1936 until his death. He was the last Emperor of India (until   1947) and the last King of Ireland (until 1949).

As the second son of King George V, he was not   expected to inherit the throne and spent his early life in the shadow of   his elder brother, Edward. He served in the Royal Navy during World War   I, and after the war took on the usual round of public engagements. He   married Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon in 1923, and they had two daughters,   Elizabeth (who succeeded him as Queen Elizabeth II) and Margaret.

At the death of his father in 1936, the future George   VI's brother ascended the throne as Edward VIII. However, less than a   year later Edward expressed his desire to marry the twice-divorced   American socialite Wallis Simpson. For political and religious reasons,   the British Prime Minister, Stanley Baldwin, advised Edward that he   could not marry Mrs. Simpson and remain king. So, Edward abdicated in   order to marry. By reason of this abdication, unique in the history of   the British Isles (previous abdications were forced by military or   political pressures), George VI ascended the throne as the third monarch   of the House of Windsor.

Within twenty-four hours of his accession the Irish parliament passed the External Relations Act,   which essentially removed the power of the monarch in Ireland. Further   events greatly altered the position of the monarchy during his reign:   three years after his accession, his realms, except Ireland, were at war   with Nazi Germany. In the next two years, war with Italy and the Empire   of Japan followed. A major consequence of World War II was the decline   of the British Empire, with the United States and the Soviet Union   rising as pre-eminent world powers. With the independence of India and   Pakistan in 1947, and the foundation of the Republic of Ireland in 1949,   King George's reign saw the acceleration of the break-up of the British   Empire and its transition into the Commonwealth of Nations.
