The Royal House of Lee

Because George I had no natural children of his own, and the last of his step-son died during the Revolutionary War, George I turned to an old friend and war colleage, Henry Lee III, known as 'Light Horse Harry' during the war. His name was placed in nomination with the death of George I in 1799 by the congress and he was confirmed the following year. The Royal House Name took his own, as the Royal House of Lee.

The Royal House of Abercromby-Lee

Princess Matilda married William James Thompson-Abercromby in 1914 and became the Duchess of Abercromby. When her father, King Henery III died in 1923, she was nominated and became the first (and to date only) Queen Regent of the United States. When she died in 1959 her second son, Prince George Henry, became King George IV. As the last of the Lee males had died in 1923, the new Royal Household name became Abercromby. King George IV changed the name to Abercromby-Lee in 1976 to honor his family heritage.
