HM Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom, 18872
     Victoria Alexandrina Hanover, Queen of the United Kingdom was born on 24 May 1819 at Kensington Palace, Kensington, London, England.1 She was the daughter of Edward Augustus Hanover, 1st Duke of Kent and Marie Luise Victoire Prinzessin von Sachsen-Coburg-Saalfeld. She married Albert Prinz von Sachsen-Coburg und Gotha, son of Ernst I Anton Karl Ludwig Herzog von Sachsen-Coburg und Gotha and Luise Pauline Charlotte Friedrike Auguste Prinzessin von Sachsen-Gotha-Altenburg, on 10 February 1840 at St. James's Palace, Chapel Royal, St. James's, London, England.5 She died on 22 January 1901 at age 81 at Osborne Castle, Osborne, Isle of Wight, England.1 She was buried on 4 February 1901 at Royal Mausoleum, Frogmore House, Windsor, Berkshire, England.5
     She gained the title of HM Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom on 20 June 1837.1 She was crowned Queen of the United Kingdom on 28 June 1838 at Westminster Abbey, Westminster, London, England, and styled 'By the Grace of God, of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, Queen, Defender of the Faith.1,6' She gained the title of HM Empress of India in 1877.1
     Victoria's father died when she was eight months old, and his place was filled by her uncle Leopold of Saxe-Coburg (later King of the Belgians). She married her cousin Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha and they had nine children. She and Albert set a moral example to the nation at a time when morality was lax and restored the monarchy's dignity. They were both moved by the exploitation of children by industry and the pressing need for relief of poverty. Inheriting the throne at only 18, she learned statecraft from Prime Minister Lord Melbourne and later from Albert, her husband. His early death in 1861 deeply distressed her and she was grief stricken for a number of years, wearing only black and living in seclusion. She took some comfort from her Scottish servant John Brown. Victoria was the longest lived, 81 years 243 days, and longest reigning, 63 years 216 days, of any English monarch.7 She has an extensive biographical entry in the Dictionary of National Biography.8

Albert, Prince Consort of Great Britain 1
     Albert Prinz von Sachsen-Coburg und Gotha was born on 26 August 1819 at Schloss Rosenau, Coburg, Bayern, Germany.3 He was the son of Ernst I Anton Karl Ludwig Herzog von Sachsen-Coburg und Gotha and Luise Pauline Charlotte Friedrike Auguste Prinzessin von Sachsen-Gotha-Altenburg. He married Victoria Alexandrina Hanover, Queen of the United Kingdom, daughter of Edward Augustus Hanover, 1st Duke of Kent and Marie Luise Victoire Prinzessin von Sachsen-Coburg-Saalfeld, on 10 February 1840 at St. James's Palace, Chapel Royal, St. James's, London, England.4 He died on 14 December 1861 at age 42 at Windsor Castle, Windsor, Berkshire, England, from typhoid fever.3 He was buried at Royal Mausoleum, Frogmore House, Windsor, Berkshire, England.5 He was buried at St. George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, Windsor, Berkshire, England.5
     He was given the name of Franz August Karl Albert Emanuel von Sachsen-Coburg und Gotha at birth.3 He gained the title of Herzog von Sachsen (styled as Duke of Saxony). He gained the title of Prinz von Sachsen-Coburg und Gotha (styled as Prince of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha) in 1821. He was invested as a Knight, Order of the Garter (K.G.) on 16 December 1839.6 He gained the title of HRH Prince Albert of the United Kingdom on 6 February 1840.3 He gained the title of Prince Consort Albert of the United Kingdom (styled as HRH The Prince Consort) on 26 June 1857.3
     After a careful domestic education, the Prince, along with his elder brother, studied at Brussels and Bonn, where, in addition to the sciences connected to state-craft, he devoted himself with ardour to natural history and chemistry and displayed a great taste for the fine arts, especially painting and music. Gifted with a handsome figure, he attained expertness in all knightly exercises. Queen Victoria and he met first in 1836, and fell in love like ordinary mortals, though the marriage had long been projected by King Leopold and Baron Stockmar. The title of Consort of Her Most Gracious Majesty was formally confered in 1842, and that of Prince Consort in 1857. He abstained, with prudence and tact, from undue meddling with state affairs, whilst opening for himself an influential sphere of action in the encouragement and promotion of science and art. The Exhibition of 1851 owed much to him. He held strongly that Prussia should be supreme in Germany.7
