On This Day: British Royal Family
 
Today is the anniversary of the Queen's proclamation as Queen and I thought that it would be nice to start an On this Day thread for the family where TRF members could mark important dates in the British Royal Family as their anniversaries appear.

Feb. 8, 1952 - A New Queen is proclaimed
 
So I'll start with today's important event:


On Feb 8, 1952 exactly 56 years ago from today, a new queen was proclaimed.

The BBC has a really nice write up of the Queen's ascension here:

The Queen opened her speech,

Quote:

"By the sudden death of my dear father I am called to assume the duties and responsibilities of sovereignty."

Along the lines of the War of the Roses, today marks the death of Margaret of Anjou, the last Lancaster queen consort.

After the defeat of their final forces and death of her son, Margaret spent time in the custody of her former lady in waiting, the Duchess of Suffolk. She was later ransomed by her cousin King Louis XI and spent her remaining years in France. She died and was buried with her parents in Anjou.


It is also the 77th anniversary of the death of Prince George, Duke of Kent, the father of the current Duke, Prince Michael and Princess Alexandra.

Prince George who died in an airplane crash when Michael was only seven weeks old, was the first member of the BRF to die in active duty in 450 years.

He was the second child of George V to die, the first of course being John who died at 14. The queen's father would be next a decade later.

Franz Albrecht (Augustus Charles Emmanuel). Besides Charles/Karl, he was named for his godfathers. Albrecht was not a middle name, it was his legal first name. Not uncommon for double barrel names in the German houses, nor to go by one or the other. Even when young he went by Albrecht.

Along the lines of Victoria who was christened Alexandrina Victoria.

Neither he nor Victoria used their technical first name for any of their kids.

Among their grandchildren Franz and Alexandra were used. Vicky's son Sigismund was Franz Friedrich (went by his third). He even had a granddaughter named for him. Helena's daughter commonly known as Marie Louise, her first name was Franziska. It was quite common among their grandchildren not to go by their first given name (often not even second). Alexandra/er was more common.

Ah yes, "Her Highness Princess Franziska Josepha Louise Augusta Marie Christina Helena." How on earth did they manage to re-arrange her name to Marie Louise? Her godfather was Emperor Franz Joseph and she was named after him but always called Louie by the family.

Is it correct to conclude that Princess Franziska was the person who selected Marie Louise to be called?

It's my understanding her father chose the name. He met the Empress Marie Louise as a boy and developed a crush on her.

Do you know why she was called Louise Augusta and then changed to Marie Louise?

Gawin 08-29-2019 06:40 PM

The following statement was published in several newspapers I searched in the Findmypast British newspaper database:

"The Lord Chamberlain is authorized to announce that in order to prevent the confusion which has often arisen between her Royal Highness Princess Louise, Duchess of Argyll, and her Highness Princess Louise Augusta of Schleswig-Holstein, owing to both bearing the same Christian name, the Princess Louise Augusta will for the future be known as her Highness Princess Marie Louise of Schleswig-Holstein."

-The [London] Standard, December 7, 1908, p. 7, col. 5

Countessmeout 08-29-2019 09:18 PM

Considering her nickname was Louie, a play off Louise, it makes sense she was actually referred to as Louise Augusta prior to that declaration. Not to mention that Louise Augusta are paired in her name, not needing the re-arranging Marie Louise requires.

Part of me wonders why the announcement was made at the time. Marie Louise had returned to England in 1900 and been performing duties. I'd think if it caused enough confusion for such a statement, it would have happened earlier.


August 29 in 1298 Eleanor of England, Countess of Bar, the eldest living daughter of Edward the Longshanks, died in Ghent.

Sadly, both of her surviving children were beheaded by the Tudors: Edward by Henry VII at the age of 24 (after he had been imprisoned in The Tower since the age of six and held mostly in solitary confinement) and Margaret at the age of 69(!) by Henry VIII. Her's was badly botched and it took several blows to end her life. Their only real crime was being born Plantagenet.

Abdication is a kind word, he was deposed. He was imprisoned in the Tower of London and really had little other choice besides his own death. He was later starved to death by his cousin after a failed attempt to free him.

If it had been a simple adbication Henry IV would not have been king. He was by no means next in line for the throne. Edmund Mortimer was the great-grandson of Edward III by his second son, making his claim superior to that of Henry who was descended from his third son. Edmund though took his claim in the female line (his grandmother) and that was used to bolster the strength of Henry's claim. Edmund died childless though, though there were other heirs to his branch of the family after him.

The queen died from a fall from her horse.

The locals in Cullen where she died took great care, including removing her organs before enbalment, to make sure her body made it south okay. In thanks Robert created a chaplaincy at the old kirk in Cullen, to pray for his wife. The money continued until 1975 (supplemented by future rulers including Mary). In 2011 it was restored, and prayers are still said on Sunday to her.

There are rumors her organs never went south but are buried there instead.

The queen was interred at Dunfermline Abbey in Scotland and her tomb was preserved there until 1560 when the abbey was ransacked by Calvinists,in 1917 her coffin was discovered during excavations and was reburied along side those of her husband Robert the Bruce which also had been discovered in 1818.

Prince George was also a first cousin of his wife's successor, King George I.

His brother King Christian V of Denmark was an ancestor of Queen Alexandra (wife of Edward VII) and of course all subsequent British monarchs.

Christian V was also an ancestor of Prince Philip (husband of Elizabeth II). Philip descends as well from two of Prince George and King Christian's sisters: Frederika (wife of Duke Christian of Holstein-Gottorp) and Ulrika Eleonora (wife of King Carl XII of Sweden).

Halloween, not a good day for deaths in the BRF history:

Eleanor of England, Queen of Castille-daughter of Henry II died in 1212, 26 days after the death of her husband Alfono VIII of Castille. She was said to be so distraught over his death, that she had been unable to attend his funeral, falling and dying less then a month later.

Robert, 1st earl of Gloucester- died in 1147. He was a bastard son of Henry I. He was his half-sister Empress Mathilda's chief military aid. Robert was captured in the rout of Winchester. Mathilda released Stephen who she had in prison at the time, in return for her brother. By doing so she gave up her last chance at being queen and returned to France where she died.

Yes, on George of Denmark's mother's side. George's mother was Sophie Amalie of Brunswick-Luneberg. Sophie was the daughter of George, Duke of Brunswick-Luneberg. Sophie was the 5th of 8 children. Her youngest brother (7th child) Ernest Augustus was father to George I.

But George I married his first cousin. Sophia Dorothea of Celle was the daughter of Sophie Amalie and Ernest Augustus' older brother George William.

These royal updates are really interesting. Thank you!

With regard to John, does anyone know why he was taken all the way to Worcester to be buried when Southwell Minster is so close to Newark? I had wondered about Lincoln Cathedral as well but I've subsequently found out that Lincoln was being rebuilt at the time of John's death so presumably would have resembled a building site. Peterborough Cathedral is also closer & presumably would have been easier to travel to from Newark in the early thirteenth century.
