This is King Edward VII.

He was the son of Queen Victoria — namesake of the Victorian Era — and the great-grandfather of the recently departed Queen Elizabeth II.

He was also so freak nasty that our boy was nicknamed "Edward the Caresser."

Yes, according to Edward VII: The Prince of Wales and the Women He Loved, a book by historian and journalist Catharine Arnold, Edward had a line of sex workers, socialites, actresses, and aristocrats knocking at his bedchamber.

And he was so audacious with his open displays of affection for these women that he designated a pew at his coronation for "the King's special ladies," USA Today reports.

His wife, Queen Alexandra, knew of his affairs and showed kindness toward the women she shared Edward with, even allowing his mistress, Alice Keppel, to visit Edward on his deathbed.

The man's sex life was scandalous, to say the least, and if that's not enough horny history for you, then allow me to introduce you to a part of Edward's legacy that recently entranced nearly 18 million viewers when a video of one of his prized possessions went viral: his siège d'amour.

It was specifically designed for King Edward's interest in having sex with two women at once. One on the top...
