LEOPOLD OF SAXE-COBURG-GOTHA was an uncle to both Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. He was son-in-law of King George IV. He was the husband of Princess Charlotte of Wales, heir to the British throne. In other words, he was well connected. He was Queen Victoria’s “beloved” Uncle Leopold. He was father of the Empress Carlotta of Mexico. Leopold and Stockman were determined that Queen Victoria would marry Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, and they succeeded. Leopold’s influence on Queen Victoria and the Prince Consort was immense, so much so that his values redesigned the operation of MONARCHY in Britain. In many ways, Leopold was the man behind the throne.
