The Straits Settlements were a group of British territories located in Southeast Asia. Originally established in 1826 as part of the territories controlled by the British East India Company, the Straits Settlements came under direct British control as a crown colony on April 1, 1867. The colony was dissolved as part of the British reorganisation of its South-East Asian dependencies following the end of the Second World War. The Straits Settlements consisted of the individual settlements of Malacca, Penang (also known as Prince of Wales Island), and Singapore, as well as (from 1907) Labuan. With the exception of Singapore, these territories now form a part of Malaysia.

George V (George Frederick Ernest Albert; 3 June 1865 – 20 January 1936) was   King of the United Kingdom and the British Dominions, and Emperor of   India, from 6 May 1910 through the First World War (1914–1918) until his   death in 1936.

George was a grandson of Queen Victoria and Prince   Albert and the first cousin of Tsar Nicholas II of Russia and Kaiser   Wilhelm II of Germany. From 1877 to 1891, he served in the Royal Navy.   On the death of Victoria in 1901, George's father became King Edward   VII, and George was made Prince of Wales. On his father's death in 1910,   he succeeded as King-Emperor of the British Empire. He was the only   Emperor of India to be present at his own Delhi Durbar.

As a result of the First World War, other empires in   Europe fell while his expanded to its greatest extent. In 1917, he   became the first monarch of the House of Windsor, which he renamed from   the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha as a result of anti-German public   sentiment. His reign saw the rise of socialism, communism, fascism,   Irish republicanism, and the Indian independence movement, all of which   radically changed the political landscape. The Parliament Act 1911   established the supremacy of the elected House of Commons of the United   Kingdom over the unelected House of Lords. He appointed the first Labour   ministry in 1924 and in 1931, the Statute of Westminster recognised the   dominions of the Empire as separate, independent kingdoms within the   Commonwealth of Nations. He was plagued by illness throughout much of   his later reign and at his death was succeeded by his eldest son, Edward   VIII.
