For a second there I thought that was Jan Mayen, which would finally give us an excuse to use that colour in SUCK. Alas.
Now that is some idea: Polish (or any other) government-in-exile on Jan Mayen!

Also: Does anybody here create infoboxes "on request"? Can any of the prolific wonderful infobox makers be invited into a conversation without feeling harassed?

The Two Princes

George V (David Alexander George; 14 October 1896 – 20 September 1956) was the King of the United States from 16 May 1936 to his death on 20 September 1956. The sixth monarch of the United States, George, known as David in his personal life, was the second son of King George IV and his wife Mollie Garfield, the daughter of Prime Minister James Garfield. He was appointed as heir to the throne sometime around 1924, when his older brother John was disinherited for his controversial lifestyle. His status as heir remained unchanged and he succeeded his father on his death, taking the regnal name George V. His reign saw a time of great upheaval in the United States, beginning in the later years of the Great Depression, lasting through World War II, and the beginning of the Cold War. He formed a strong bond with Franklin D. Roosevelt, Prime Minister for the first half of his reign.

George was born at Mount Vernon, the private estate of the Washington family, during the reign of his grandfather, George III, just over a year after his brother, Prince John, was born. Due to the closeness in age, the two princes were brought up doing everything together. Although John was the favorite of their royal grandfather, their maternal grandfather, Prime Minister Garfield, was fond of David and correctly predicted that he would be king one day. After completing their schooling, the princes entered the U.S. Navy, a break from Washington family tradition, as all royal men had previously been in the Army, dating back to George I, the Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army. The princes were together until the outbreak of World War I, and the subsequent American entry in 1915. David was injured near the end of the war, when a jeep he was riding in got in an accident. His right leg was pinned under the flipped vehicle, leaving him with a permanent limp and ending his military career. While convalescing in Britain, David first met the future King George VI, then known as Prince Albert, beginning their long friendship.

Upon returning to the United States, David married his sweetheart, Sarah Shepard, a New York socialite. Their first child, Prince Robert, was born a year later, in 1920. David briefly considered a political career before his father privately confided in him that he might be called upon to rule someday due to Prince John's behavior. David began training to be king after that point, assisting his father in his royal duties. He was formally instituted as heir a few years later.

George IV died in 1936 and David became King George V. Prince John did not oppose his succession at all, preferring the free life of a prince. At the time, Franklin D. Roosevelt was Prime Minister. George initially found him incredibly arrogant, but soon came to rely on him for his experience and knowledge and greatly valued his leadership during tough times in the nation. Due to his correspondence with George VI in Britain, who had unexpectedly succeeded to the throne in the same year as George V, the American monarch was keenly aware of brewing troubles in Europe and was firmly opposed to the Nazis and their allies. He privately supported American entry into World War II. After the attack on Pearl Harbor, George strongly backed Roosevelt and his war effort. He led the nation to a victorious end, with all four of his sons in active service. However, the youngest, Prince William, was shot down while flying in Germany, leading to the other princes being called home. William was the third of George's children to die, after Princess Alice, who died as a toddler in 1928, and Princess Victoria, who died of what was later discovered to be breast cancer.

After the war, Franklin Roosevelt resigned and was succeeded by W. Averell Harriman. George did not particularly get on with Harriman, instead continuing to receive counsel from Roosevelt. He also had a poor relationship with Harriman's successor, the archconservative Robert Taft. It was during Taft's premiership that the royal family was struck by crises, beginning with the death of the king's brother, Prince John, in a murder-suicide. The investigation into his death landed Prince Robert in scandal, at the same time Princess Victoria's widower, Oliver Lincoln, was being investigated by Joe McCarthy for his connections to suspected Hollywoodland communists. Prince Robert was removed from the succession as a consequence of these events and replaced by the king's second son, Prince Thomas. The king despised being strongarmed by Taft and Congress and was much more amenable to Taft's successor, William Knowland, purely on the basis that he was not Taft. Knowland involved the United States in the Chinese Civil War, a move the king opposed, although American allies won the war. During the war, Prince Peter, the king's third son, vanished to rejoin the Navy and returned from the war with an Australian wife.

In the last years of George's life, he prepared Prince Thomas to succeed him. A lifelong heavy smoker and drinker, George never reined in these vices and found himself in increasingly ill health as his lungs and liver failed him. Although he was only approaching 60, he looked closer to 70. By 1956, his lung cancer was inoperable, and he died from it. He was succeeded by Prince Thomas as King George VI.

Prince John (John George Robert; 26 July 1895 – 28 April 1953) was an American prince, the first son and child of King George IV and his wife, Queen Mollie Garfield. John was born at Mount Vernon, the private estate of the Washington family. At the time of his birth, he was second in line to the throne after his father. He was raised closely with his younger brother David, the future King George V. In 1910, they joined the Navy together and both saw action during World War I. While David's career was ended by injury, John stayed in the Navy after the war.

In 1918, he married Julia Hayes, a socialite five years his senior, mostly to spite his parents, who were trying to convince him to marry a suitable bride, probably Princess Mary of the United Kingdom. John and Julia spent most of the marriage separated, but she introduced him to new social scenes. John quickly became a fixture at New York dance clubs and was a patron of many jazz artists. In 1921, he divorced Hayes, as they were both involved in numerous other relationships. It was rumored at the time that John was involved with men. His two year sojourn in Europe saw him involved in many high profile affairs, including with his future third wife, Lizette Deschamps. However, he ended up marrying British actress Esther Gambrell and living with her in London. The relationship was extremely curious, as they were well known in London society for hating each other before the marriage.

In 1924, John returned to the United States and was involved in the highly publicized trial of musician Johnny Barton, accused of murdering his wife's lover, banker Andrew Crandall. Although Barton was acquitted of the charges and John had no connection to the murder, King George IV decided to disinherit John at this time and replace him with Prince David. Unfazed, John returned to England with Barton. Shortly thereafter, Barton began an affair with Gambrell, eventually leading to John and Gambrell having a highly publicized divorce. After the divorce, John moved to Paris and settled down with Lizette Deschamps. Surprisingly, both remained loyal to each other, and they moved to the United States, where John re-assumed a role in the Navy. He also acknowledged his brother's position as heir to the throne.

However, the positive relation between John and Lizette began crumbling, and John's extended tours around the world with the Navy led to Lizette correctly assuming he was unfaithful. They were divorced in 1938. Shortly thereafter, John married Annamaria Van Houten, an heiress of an old Dutch family from upstate New York. John and Annamaria tried to conceive children numerous times, unsuccessfully, putting a strain on their marriage. With the start of World War II, John was an active leader in the Navy and devoted himself to his work. He also became an important ambassador for the United States around the world. After the war, John was involved in the creation of the United Nations and worked closely with Prime Minister Franklin D. Roosevelt in the organization's early days.

John divorced Annamaria in 1948, having decided that marriage was not a suitable state of affairs for him. He moved to New York to work with the United Nations there. He soon became acquainted with actress Maggie Milford, who would become his final long term partner. Their relationship was extremely volatile and ended in their deaths when Milford killed John at a royal hunting lodge in the New Jersey Pine Barrens, before fleeing to Las Vegas and killing herself. John's death and the subsequent investigation became a highly publicized affair, like most things in John's life. No motive was discovered until over a decade later, when a New York woman, Maria Fabrizi, came forward claiming her three children were John's. Rudimentary DNA tests suggested that this was true and a subsequent investigation found that the king was aware of the children and had secretly been supporting them. Fabrizi only came forward once the king ceased payments. Police concluded that Maggie Milford became aware of John's children and killed him for this. King George ended up restoring payment to the Fabrizis and after Maria Fabrizi's death, the children were welcomed into the royal family. Other people have claimed to be descended from Prince John, though no claims have been proven or acknowledged by the royal family. John's colorful life has been a popular subject of adaptation, being the subject of numerous books, films, and other media.
 
If this was Brazil I would even understand (here the N word is the respectable way to call, "black" or "preto" is considered a slur), but... I don't think so.

Congratulations.

This is, comfortably, the most repulsive post of 2018 that doesn't actually reach the point that I can toss you for it.

Since you ARE now aware that this sort of this is below the standards of this Board, I have no doubt that it will never happen again.
