After Queen Elizabeth’s death, many videos and claims were made on the internet. One of those claims is the video footage of two women throwing money at children. Those images have been served for years as the Queen is handing out money to children in an African country. But the truth is, it wasn’t like that at all.
VIDEO OF THE GOVERNOR OF THE FRENCH COLONIAL
According to the information in the catalog of the Lumière Brothers, known as the inventors of modern cinema, the video belongs to French director Gabriel Veyre. It is understood that the short film “Enfants annamites ramassant des sapèques devant la pagode des dames” was shot between 1899-1900. In the short film Veyre shot in Vietnam, the women who are seen throwing money at Vietnamese children are Blanche Doumer and her daughter, the wife of Paul Doumer, the then French colonial governor general. The film was screened in France on January 20, 1901.
IMAGES TAKEN BEFORE THE QUEEN IS BORN
Queen of England II. If we pay attention to the fact that Elizabeth was born on April 21, 1926, and that the film in question was shot between 1899-1900, we can see that the woman in the images was II. It turns out that she is not Elizabeth.
