Alphonse wae was the son of Count Emmanuel von Mensdorff-Pouilly and Princess Sophie of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld, the daughter of Francis, Duke of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld, on 22nd February 1804 at Coburg. Hence the family were realted closely to the Belgian and British royal families. I send also to you my words of sympathy on behalf of the loss you have suffered. It seems to me as if the news of his end could not be real. How your Hearst, and the heart of the good uncle must be bleeding! We had so much looked forward to seeing Hugo here together with his father, and now he has been torn from our midst. Words of consolation I cannot find.

God must have meant well with him, and he might have xxx for us, but the hearts are torn apart. October 30, 1827 He was the husband and consort of Queen Victoria. 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; they had nine children. Initially he felt constrained by his role of consort, which did not afford him any power or responsibilities, but gradually developed a reputation for supporting many public causes, such as educational reform and the abolition of slavery worldwide, and was entrusted with running the Queen's household, office and estates.

He was heavily involved with the organisation of the Great Exhibition of 1851, which was a resounding success. Victoria came to depend more and more on his support and guidance. He aided the development of Britain's constitutional monarchy by persuading his wife to be less partisan in her dealings with Parliamentalthough he actively disagreed with the interventionist foreign policy pursued during Lord Palmerston's tenure as Foreign Secretary. In 1857, he was given the formal title of Prince Consort. Albert died at the relatively young age of 42, plunging the Queen into deep mourning. On her death in 1901, their eldest son succeeded as Edward VII, the first British monarch of the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, named after the ducal house to which Albert belonged.
