Photograph of 'Boz' the Skye Terrier that was given to the Duchess of Kent by her daughter, Queen Victoria #22794617 & #1442 . The dog lies on a raised, covered surface against a featureless background and faces three-quarters left. Queen Victoria gave the Skye Terrier to her mother, the Duchess of Kent #3139, in 1857. The dog was named Boz after Charles Dickens. Following the Duchess’s death in 1861 he spent the rest of his life in the Queen’s care, remaining her faithful dog until his death in 1864. This object was displayed at the Charles Dickens Reception at Buckingham Palace, 2012.

Victoria was born in Coburg on 17 August 1786 in the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation. She was the fourth daughter and seventh child of Franz Frederick Anton, Duke of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld, and Countess Augusta of Reuss-Ebersdorf. One of her brothers was Ernest I, Duke of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, and another brother, Leopold future king of the Belgians, married, in 1816, Princess Charlotte of Wales, the only legitimate daughter of the future King George IV, and heiress presumptive to the British throne.
