The name Saxe-Coburg-Gotha came to the British Royal Family in 1840 with the marriage of Queen Victoria to Prince Albert, son of Ernst, Duke of Saxe-Coburg & Gotha. Queen Victoria herself remained a member of the House of Hanover.

The only British monarch of the House of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha was King Edward VII, who reigned for nine years at the beginning of the modern age in the early years of the twentieth century.

King George V replaced the German-sounding title with that of Windsor during the First World War

Reminds me of a scene from Black Adder.

it is SO annoying when someone makes a complete @rse of himself and then the post is removed before I have a chance to read it. Still, I guess YF will soon be back to justify whatever he did say in order that we all realise that he was right after....hang on....
