Prince Albert of Saxe Coburg and Gotha (Francis Albert Augustus Charles Emmanuel, later HRH The Prince Consort) (26 August 1819 – 14 December 1861) was the husband of Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland.
Prince Albert came from a family tradition of homeopathy, and when he came to England to marry Queen Victoria, he renewed the Royal patronage of homeopathy. Albert’s father was Ernest I, Duke of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, formerly Ernest III, Duke of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld 1784 – 1844 who engaged Samuel Hahnemann to treat Friedrick Arnold Klockenbring 1742 – 1795.
Prince Albert was the President of the Society for Improving the Condition of the Labouring Classes and the Society for the Extinction of Slavery, and he was a friend of Robert Peel. Robert Liston, a close friend of Frederick Hervey Foster Quin, was his Surgeon in Ordinary.
Albert’s future wife, Queen Victoria, was born in the same year with the assistance of the same midwife.
