Personal Information

  • Name Alexandra Louise Princess of England 
    Born 1878 
    Gender Female 
    Died 1942 
    • Princess Alexandra of Edinburgh and Saxe-Coburg-Gotha (Alexandra Louise Olga Victoria) (September 1, 1878 - April 16, 1942) was a member of the British Royal Family. She was born in Coburg, Germany.

      Princess Alexandra's father was Prince Alfred, Duke of Edinburgh, the second eldest son of Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom and her consort Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha. Her mother was Grand Duchess Marie Alexandrovna of Russia, a daughter of Alexander II of Russia and Marie of Hesse and by Rhine.

      In 1893, her great-uncle, Ernst II, Duke of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha (brother of her paternal grandfather, Prince Albert) died without heirs. Since Albert was dead and her uncle, Edward VII of the United Kingdom, the Prince of Wales, had renounced his claim to the ducal throne of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, the vacant duchy fell to Alexandra's father, the Duke of Edinburgh. Thus Princess Alexandra was both a British princess and Princess of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha from birth.

      On April 20, 1896, Princess Alexandra married Ernest, Prince of Hohenlohe-Langenburg. Together they had four children:

      Prince Godfrey, 8th Prince of Hohenlohe-Langenburg

      Princess Marie-Melita of Hohenlohe-Langenburg

      Princess Alexandra of Hohenlohe-Langenburg

      Princess Irma of Hohenlohe-Langenburg

      Prince Alfred of Hohenlohe-Langenburg, who was stillborn

      Nicknamed, Sandra by her family, Princess Alexandra lived for the rest of her life in Germany. She died in Schwabisch Hall, Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany in 1942.
