Elizabeth Angela Marguerite Bowes-Lyon - a.k.a The Queen Mother (mother of the current UK Queen Elizabeth) was born on the 4th of August 1900. The place of her birth is so far unconfirmed.
Some reports suggest she was born at her parent's house, in Grosvenor Gardens in London, or at Forbes House in Ham, near Richmond, London. Or, in an ambulance on the way to hospital.
Editor's note ; Given her extremely prominent position, it seems unlikely that no-one has, or can find, records to support this. Suggested not for inclusion
