About Adelaide Louise Theresa Caroline Amelia von Sachsen-Meiningen (Wettin, Ernestiner), Queen Consort of England

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adelaide_of_Saxe-Meiningen

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adelaide

Named in honour of Queen Adelaide, the German-born consort of King William IV, the city was founded in 1836 as the planned capital for a freely settled British province in Australia.[5] Colonel William Light, one of Adelaide's founding fathers, designed the city and chose its location close to the River Torrens in the area originally inhabited by the Kaurna people. Light's design set out Adelaide in a grid layout, interspaced by wide boulevards and large public squares, and entirely surrounded by parkland. Early Adelaide was shaped by religious freedom and a commitment to political progressivism and civil liberties, which led to the moniker "City of Churches".[6]
