Virtual exhibition on Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha (1819 – 1861)
The Veste Coburg Art Collections are showing their extensive collection of objects related to Queen Victoria’s Prince Consort in a virtual exhibition.
“Prince Consort Albert, England and Europe” is now online on bavarikon, the Internet portal of the Free State of Bavaria for the presentation of art, culture and science treasures, at bavarikon.de.
In six subject areas, visitors will find detailed information and zoomable images about his origins, the marriage policy of the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, Prince Albert and his wife, Queen Victoria, his family and work, Coburg and, lastly, his memory and his succession.
The numerous objects in the Veste Coburg Art Collections, most of them former ducal possessions, are proof of the close relations between Coburg and the European courts in the nineteenth century.
