It’s time again to find out about one of the most famous stamp collectors of the world again! Another popular leader who was known for his passion for stamp collecting was President Franklin Roosevelt. He was the thirty-second president of the United States, who got elected during the Great Depression and served into World War II. Just like King George V, he is also one of the most famous stamp collectors who took his hobby seriously.
Unlike other monarchs of Britain, King George V had a very distinct personality. Some historians have called him a ‘dull’ man. Calling someone ‘dull’ is a matter of choice though and hence is very subjective. It was only because his ordinary lifestyle did not match up to a King’s status that he attracted controversies like these. One thing that makes him different though was his love for stamp collection. In a way, he not only shaped the structure of Monarchy in Britain but is someone who revived philately as a hobby. Considering his position and stature, he is considered as one of the most famous stamp collectors of the world.
