The Federal Monarchy was established in 1787 by delegates of the several states at the Philadelphia Convention. They created an elective monarchy, with a king elected by the electoral college (which consists of the members of the congress and two electors from each state) for life. His title was established as "His Elective Majesty, by the Will of the People, King of the United States of America an Protector of Their Liberties." The first king elected was George Washington, elected in 1789 as George I. He reigned from 1789-1799. On his death, his adoptive son/step-grandson was elected as King George II. He married Lady Mary Fitzhugh, daughter of the Earl of Chatham, and had one daughter, Princess Mary. She married the Honorable Robert Lee, younger son of the Earl of Stratford. Robert Lee was created Earl of Arlington upon the marriage. On George II's death, the electors decided to elect his grandson George Lee, Viscount Custis. George III never married, and on his death in 1913, the electors decided to elect his brother Robert as King, but he refused. They then elected George III's nephew as George IV. He reigned from 1914-1938, when he died. By this time, the monarchy was hereditary in all but name, and by Constitutional Amendment in 1920 they made it officially so. George IV was married to Juliet Carter. Their son and successor was George V (reigned from 1938-his death in 1965). He was married to Princess Maud of Fife, a granddaughter of King Edward VII of the United Kingdom. Their only son is now King George VI of the United States, born 1925.
