"King George V (1865-1936) - father of King George VI (1895-1952). One of the few men in history who can make that beard and moustache combination work (apart from Nicholas II who also looks great) and actually look wonderful in it."

George V beard - heavy moustache worn as a handlebar, solid in the chin. Neat lines shaped by cut throat razor on the cheeks and neck.
