Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha (later The Prince Consort) was born to a family connected to many of Europe's ruling monarchs. Aged 20 he married his first cousin, Queen Victoria of Great Britain and Ireland, and they would ultimately have nine children. Albert felt constrained by his position as consort, which did not confer any power or duties upon him. He adopted many public causes, such as educational reform and a worldwide abolition of slavery, and took on the responsibilities of running the Queen's household, estates and office.
