zašto je zapravo prestolonaslednik princ đorđe abdicirao? e sad postoji priča da se "odrekao" prestola nakon što je iz besa šutnuo svog slugu jer nije pronašao pismo koje je ostavio na stolu od kojeg je čovek kasnije preminuo.
konstantno je pravio probleme, pucao po kući uništavao sav nameštaj. učitelji su ga opisivali kao ne toliko bistrog momka koji nije želeo da sluša niti ga je išta zanimalo. dosta skandala oko preljuba i njegove seksualnosti.
