He was a very good consort to Victoria, and wasn't treated that kindly by the British people.

I've read just about every biography of Queen Victoria ever written. She fell in love with Albert literally at first sight, and remained in love with him till he died.
She wore mourning for him for the rest of her life.

He was a very intelligent man, and accomplished as well. He designed Osbourn House and Balmoral. He could compose music and was a patron of the arts. He was also a savvy politician whose great dream was to see his beloved Germany a constitutional monarchy like Great Britain. If he had lived to see World War I, ti would have broken his heart. Also, he was the one who popularised the Christmas Tree.

Albert was the child of a broken home. His mother Louise, tired of her husband's affairs, had one of her own. She was banished by Albert's father (the hypocrite) and died shortly afterwards.

And he was present at the birth of all his children!
And it occurred very rarely in that times.
Which contemporary father experienced that so many times?

Leslie2006 08-07-2009 05:03 PM

Good point! Most fathers-to-be were not allowed in the birthing room, and were kept outside the doors while the child was being born. It wasn't considered 'proper' for a man to witness the birth of his child.

He was certainly a man of many talents - campaigner aganist slavery, architecht, 'reformer and thinker' , administrator and faithful husaband/family man. Just what 21st century society needs!

Yes, that's true. I was born and raised in St. Wendel, the city to which Luise of Saxe-Coburg escaped. There are many stories about her, she married her secound husband in St. Wendel and was very popular to the people of St. Wendel, streets and restaurants are named after her. Later she went to Paris and died there after suffering from cancer at the age of 30.

Two years ago there was an exhibition in the Museum of St. Wendel and I was able to see Luise's gown, Alberts christening robe and other dresses he had worn as a toddler. It was amazing! :flowers:
