Duke of Schleswig-Holstein Albert


English-born Germany royalty, the second son of Princess Helena and Prince Christian of Schleswig-Holstein. Unlike his older brother Prince Christian Victor, who served with the British Army, Albert served with the Prussian army, although he was excused from fighting the British during the First World War.

Prince Albert never married. He fathered an illegitimate daughter, Valerie Marie. Born 3 April 1900 in Liptovský Mikuláš, Hungary, Austria-Hungary, she was placed almost immediately after her birth with Anna Rosenthal and her husband Rubin Schwalb, of Jewish origin. On 15 April 1931, shortly before his death, Albert wrote to her, admitting to her his paternity. After this, on 12 May she changed her surname from Schwalb, the name of her foster family, to "zu Schleswig-Holstein".

Duke Albert died in Berlin, Germany on 27 April 1931.
