His Royal Highness Albert, The Prince Consort (1819-1861) né His Serene Highness Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha

His Royal Highness Albert, The Prince Consort (1819-1861) né His Serene Highness Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha

Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha was the husband of Queen Victoria of Great Britain and Ireland.  He was born in the Saxon duchy of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld to a family connected to many of Europe's ruling monarchs. At the age of 20 he married his first cousin, Queen Victoria, with whom he would ultimately have nine children. At first, Albert felt constrained by his position as consort, which did not confer any power or duties upon him.
