About Albert, Prince Consort

"Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha (Francis Albert Augustus Charles Emmanuel; later The Prince Consort; 26 August 1819 – 14 December 1861) was the husband of Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom 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. Over time he adopted many public causes, such as educational reform and a worldwide abolition of slavery, and took on the responsibilities of running the Queen's household, estates and office. He was heavily involved with the organisation of the Great Exhibition of 1851. Albert aided in the development of Britain's constitutional monarchy by persuading his wife to show less partisanship in her dealings with Parliament—although he actively disagreed with the interventionist foreign policy pursued during Lord Palmerston's tenure as Foreign Secretary. He died at the early age of 42, plunging the Queen into a deep mourning that lasted for the rest of her life. Upon Queen Victoria's death in 1901, their eldest son, Edward VII, succeeded as the first British monarch of the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, named after the ducal house to which Albert belonged."

Prinssi Albert (Albert von Sachsen-Coburg und Gotha, 26. elokuuta 1819 – 14. joulukuuta 1861) oli Yhdistyneen kuningaskunnan kuningatar Viktorian puoliso vuodesta 1840 alkaen. Hän oli kotoisin Saksin ruhtinaskunnasta Kaakkois-Saksasta ja syntyi merkittävään eurooppalaiseen Saksi-Coburg-Gotha -hallitsijasukuun. Prinssi Albert meni vuonna 1840 naimisiin serkkunsa kuningatar Viktorian kanssa. He saivat yhdeksän lasta, joista monet solmivat avioliiton muiden eurooppalaisten hallitsijasukujen kanssa.[1] Prinssi Albert kuoli lavantautiin.

Vuonna 1857 prinssi-puolison arvonimen saanut prinssi Albert oli avioliittonsa aikana puolisonsa tärkein neuvonantaja ja harmaa eminenssi. Erityisesti hänen panoksena näkyi kuningasperheen toiminnan modernisoimisessa uuden ajan haasteisiin vastaten. Prinssi Albert oli myös ensimmäisen maailmannäyttelyn kantava ja ideoiva voima.

Lastensa kautta prinssipuoliso Albert on useimpien Euroopan kuningasperheiden esi-vanhempi. Hänen jälkeläisiinsä kuuluvat muun muassa Yhdistyneiden kuningaskuntien nykyinen hallitsija kuningatar Elisabet, Espanjan Juan Carlos I, Tanskan kuningatar Margareeta , Norjan Harald V ja Ruotsin Kaarle XVI Kustaa.

The moment the Queen saw her distant cousin, she fell in love. This was indeed a love match that ended only when Albert died. On this day, a peasant fired at the Queen, but missed.
