Christian of Schleswig-Holstein
Birth: Jan. 22, 1831
Death: Oct. 28, 1917

European Royalty. Born Frederick Christian Charles Augustus in Augustenborg, Denmark, the second son of Christian August, Duke of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Augustenburg House of Oldenburg, and his wife, Louise of Danneskjold-Samsøe. In September 1865, he met the British Princess, Helena, a daughter of HRM Victoria and Prince Albert. The couple became engaged in December of that year. They married at the Private Chapel at Windsor Castle on July 5, 1866. The couple would have six children. The Queen appointed him a Knight of the Garter and a member of the Privy Council. He became an aide-de-camp to the Queen in 1897. During WWI, anti-German sentiment in Britain led the couple to drop the territorial designation; Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderberg-Augustenburg from their names entirely. He died at Schomberg House, Pall Mall at eighty-seven. He was buried at Frogmore Royal Burial Ground. (bio by: Iola)
