Baker's Dozen of Britons Who, Had They Lived, Would Have Changed British History

1. King Edward VI
2. Harold Godwinson
3. Prince William, Duke of Gloucester 1689 - 1700
4. Edward V
5. William Gott
6. Henry V
7. Princess Charlotte of Wales
8. Alan Turing

9. Prince Friedrich Ludwig of Hanover

Prince of Wales to George II. Died before succeeding.
The crown went to his eldest son who became the tyrant George III.
Would America have been lost with Friedrich as King?
