Though the Mughal dynasty ruled over most of the Indian subcontinent from the 16th century onwards, they simply used the title badshah (considered in the West to be equivalent to emperor) without geographic designation. During the Indian rebellion of 1857, the rebel sepoys seized Delhi and proclaimed the Mughal Bahadur Shah II as Badshah-i Hind, or Emperor of India. After the rebellion was crushed, he was captured and was exiled to Rangoon, Burma (now Yangon, Myanmar) in 1858, and the Mughal dynasty came to an end.

Albert Frederick Arthur George Saxe-Coburg-Gotha

Called Albert as a young man, the future king George VI was the great-grandson of Queen Victoria and the second son of King George V. Albert served in the Royal Navy during World War I and was created Duke of York in 1920. He married Elizabeth Bowles-Lyon on 26 April 1923; the couple had two daughters, Elizabeth (b. 1926) and Margaret (b. 1930). The Duke became King George VI when his elder brother, King Edward VIII, abdicated on 10 December 1936 to marry American divorcee Wallis Simpson. George VI was formally crowned on 12 May 1937. During World War II the king and queen were praised for their staunch resolve and morale-boosting visits to factories and war-battered cities while the government of Winston Churchill prosecuted the war. A heavy smoker, George VI was recovering from an operation for lung cancer when he died of a heart attack in 1952. His daughter became Queen Elizabeth II.
