Louis Battenberg
Birth: May 24, 1854
Death: Sep. 11, 1921

British Royalty. Grandfather of Great Britain's Prince Philip. Born in Austria, Prince Louis became a naturalized British citizen upon his entry into the Royal Navy in 1868. He served as Director of Naval Intelligence (1902) & later as Rear Admiral, vice admiral, Commander of part of the Home Fleet (1910), Second Sea Lord--Chief of Naval Personnel (1911) & First Sea Lord (1912). At the order of Winston Churchill, Prince Louis retained the fleet's reserve ships at full readiness after the test mobilization in July 1914. He was forced to resign in October of that year, as a result of a surge of British anti-German sentiment. Prince Louis relinquished his German titles in 1917 & took the surname Mountbatten & was created the 1st Marquis of Milford Haven. (bio by: Connie Nisinger)
