Prince of Saxe-Altenburg Albert (circa 1890)

Biography

German prince of the ducal house of Saxe-Altenburg, and the eldest son (third in order of birth but the only one who survived to adulthood) of Prince Eduard of Saxe-Altenburg (youngest son of Frederick, Duke of Saxe-Hildburghausen) and his second wife, Princess Luise Caroline Reuss of Greiz.

He entered the Russian army early in life, and attained the rank of Major-General in this service, but subsequently exchanged it for the Prussian army, where he became a general of cavalry.

He was first married in Berlin on 6 May 1885 to Princess Marie of Prussia, widow of Prince Henry of the Netherlands. They had two daughters. Marie died in 1888. Albert later married in Remplin on 13 December 1891 to the wealthy Duchess Helene of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, only daughter of Grand Duchess Catherine Mikhailovna of Russia. They had no children.

Prince Albert became a Rechtsritter (Knight of Justice) of the Order of Saint John in 1900. He died on 22 May 1902 at Remplin.
