Lord Louis Mountbatten, the "Kingmaker".

Lord Louis Mountbatten, First Earl Mountbatten of Burma, (25th June 1900 - 2nd April 1985) was the father of the current Queen Consort, Amanda. Aside from his governorship of Burma and probable involvement in a planned British coup against the Wilson government, he is chiefly known as the "Kingmaker", since he persuaded the Queen to abdicate in 1983 in favour of King Charles III.
