He is the(その,あの,というもの) maternal(母らしい,母の,母方の) grandfather of Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden and the(その,あの,というもの) younger brother of Princess Alice, Countess of Athlone.

Early life[edit]

Prince Charles Edward was born at Claremont House near Esher, Surrey. His father was Prince Leopold, Duke of Albany, the(その,あの,というもの) fourth son of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. His mother was Princess Helena, Duchess of Albany (née Princess Helena of Waldeck and Pyrmont).

As his father died before his birth, Prince Charles Edward succeeded to his titles at birth and was styled His Royal Highness The Duke of Albany.

After becoming sick, the(その,あの,というもの) young Duke was privately(内々に) baptised at Claremont on 4 August 1884, two weeks after his birth and baptised publicly(公に,公然と,公的に) in Esher Parish Church on 4 December 1884, four months later. His godparents were his paternal(父親らしい,温情主義,干渉政治,家父長的態度,父(方)の,父のような,父親譲りの) grandmother Queen Victoria, his paternal(父親らしい,温情主義,干渉政治,家父長的態度,父(方)の,父のような,父親譲りの) uncle the(その,あの,というもの) Prince of Wales, his paternal(父親らしい,温情主義,干渉政治,家父長的態度,父(方)の,父のような,父親譲りの) aunts Princess Christian of Schleswig-Holstein and the(その,あの,というもの) Marchioness of Lorne, Princess Frederica of Hanover (his father's second cousin), his maternal(母らしい,母の,母方の) uncle Alexis, Prince of Bentheim and Steinfurt and his maternal(母らしい,母の,母方の) grandfather George Victor, Prince of Waldeck and Pyrmont (neither of whom could attend).[2] His uncle, Edward VII, made him a Knight of the(その,あの,というもの) Garter on 15 July 1902, just prior(前の,先の,より重要な,優先する,小修道院長,大修道院副院長) to his 18th birthday.

As a grandson of Queen Victoria, the(その,あの,というもの) Duke was a first cousin of George V, Emperor of India and of the(その,あの,というもの) following European Royals: Queen Maud of Norway, Grand Duke Ernst Ludwig of Hesse, Empress Alexandra of Russia, Queen Marie of the(その,あの,というもの) Romanians, Crown Princess Margaret of Sweden, Queen Victoria Eugenia of Spain, Queen Sophia of the(その,あの,というもの) Hellenes, Queen Wilhelmina of the(その,あの,というもの) Netherlands, Josias, Hereditary Prince of Waldeck and Pyrmont (the last two through his mother) and German Kaiser Wilhelm II. Such was the(その,あの,というもの) interest Wilhelm showed in his young cousin's upbringing(しつけ,教育,育て方) that Charles Edward was known as the(その,あの,というもの) Emperor's seventh son.[3] His mother drummed(太鼓,巻胴,ドラム,ドラム缶,ドラムで合図する,ドラムを打つ,呼び集める) into him endlessly((No gloss)) the(その,あの,というもの) importance of "becoming a good man, so you bring no shame on Papa's name".[4]

He studied in Bonn and was a member of Corps Borussia Bonn, to which he was introduced by the(その,あの,というもの) Kaiser.

In 1900, 16-year-old Charles Edward inherited(財産を相続する,所有する,手に入れる,を遺伝で受け継ぐ,受け継ぐ) the(その,あの,というもの) ducal throne(王座,王位,司教座,国王,皇帝) of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha from his uncle Alfred. Alfred's only son, Prince Alfred ("Young Affie"), died in 1899, and The Duke of Connaught, the(その,あの,というもの) Queen's third son, renounced(要求を正式に放棄する,をやめる,捨てる,断念する,を否認する,を拒絶する,を否定する,拒否する) his claims to the(その,あの,というもの) duchy((No gloss)). Arthur's son, Prince Arthur of Connaught, who also renounced(要求を正式に放棄する,をやめる,捨てる,断念する,を否認する,を拒絶する,を否定する,拒否する) his claims, was attending school at Eton with Prince Charles Edward, and is rumoured to have threatened to beat his cousin if he did not accept the(その,あの,というもの) duchy.((No gloss)) While at school his mother wrote to Charles Edward, instilling in him a profound(心の底から,深い,思想が深い,造詣の深い,見極める,難解な,高尚な,深遠な,深慮遠望の,完全な,心底からの) sense of duty and obligation.(負担,恩義,義務,債券,債務,義理,お陰) With such strong influences(1.促す,左右する,影響を与える,2.影響,影響力,感化,効力,作用,勢力,権力,信望,影響を与える人) from both his mother and grandmother, he had no choice but to take up the(その,あの,というもの) seat of Coburg in order to save that line of Royal blood. The Veste Coburg now became his main royal residence(邸宅,屋敷,住居,居住,安住,居留,居住地).

For the(その,あの,というもの) next five years, he reigned(支配する,主権を握る,在位期間,治世,御代,支配,統治,君臨,行き渡る) through the(その,あの,というもの) regency((No gloss)) of the(その,あの,というもの) Hereditary Prince of Hohenlohe-Langenburg, the(その,あの,というもの) husband of Duke Alfred's third daughter Alexandra. The regent(摂政,評議員) acted under the(その,あの,というもの) strict guidance(手引き,案内,指導,ガイダンス,誘導) of Emperor Wilhelm II. Upon coming(来たるべき,次の) of age on 19 July 1905, he assumed(身につける,当然と思う,引き受ける,装おう,見なす,仮定する,ふりをする,思う,信じる,様相を呈する) full constitutional(1.保健のための,構成上の,体格の,体質の,生まれつきの,2.憲法上の,合法的な,体制的な) powers.


The Duke and Duchess of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, 11 October 1905.

Wilhelm picked out his wife's niece as Charles Edward's bride,(花嫁,新婦) and on 11 October 1905, at Glücksburg Castle, Schleswig-Holstein, the(その,あの,というもの) Duke married Princess Victoria Adelaide of Schleswig-Holstein (31 December 1885 – 3 October 1970), the(その,あの,というもの) eldest(最年長の) daughter of Duke Friedrich Ferdinand of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg and Princess Karoline Mathilde of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Augustenburg. They had five children.

Through his daughter Sibylla, Charles Edward is the(その,あの,というもの) maternal(母らしい,母の,母方の) grandfather of Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden.

World War I[edit]

World War I caused a conflict(衝突する,争う,摩擦,闘争,争い,対立,矛盾する) of loyalties for Charles Edward, but finally he supported Germany and held a commission(1.委託手数料,(権限などの)委任,任務,委託,命令,委員会,職権,委任状,代理,取り次ぎ,手数料,歩合,遂行,2.委任する,任命する,操業を認める,犯すこと,依頼する) as a general in the(その,あの,というもの) German Army (although he never held a major(1.大手の,主要な,専攻の,より大きい,大きいほうの,重要な,2.少佐,成人,3.専攻する,少佐,専攻,一流の,大きな,長音の) command).(指揮,命令,眼下に見おろす,命令する,値する,指令,支配,自在に使う力,自在に操る) Consequently, George V ordered his name removed from the(その,あの,というもの) register(正式に記録する,登録簿,記録簿,名簿,記録,記入,登記,登録する,に銘記する,記名する,音域,印象に残る,書留にする) of the(その,あの,というもの) Knights of the(その,あの,というもの) Garter in 1915. In July 1917, in an effort to distance his dynasty(王朝時代,王朝,名門) from its German origins,(起源,原因,素性,生まれ) George V changed the(その,あの,というもの) name of the(その,あの,というもの) British Royal House from the(その,あの,というもの) House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha to the(その,あの,というもの) House of Windsor. That year, the(その,あの,というもの) British Parliament passed the(その,あの,というもの) Titles Deprivation Act which empowered(権限を与える) the(その,あの,というもの) Privy Council to investigate(調査する,研究する,吟味する) "any persons enjoying any dignity(尊厳,威厳,高位,爵■digoxin : ジゴキシン,爵位,品位) or title as a peer(じっと見る,凝視する,★自動詞で,たいていinやinto,throughなどを伴う) or British prince who have, during the(その,あの,というもの) present war, borne arms against His Majesty or His Allies, or who have adhered(執着する,堅く守る,粘着する,固守する,忠実である,付く) to His Majesty's enemies." Under the(その,あの,というもの) terms of that act, an Order in Council on 28 March 1919 formally(改めて,正式に) removed Charles Edward's British peerages, the(その,あの,というもの) Dukedom of Albany, Earldom of Clarence, and the(その,あの,というもの) Barony of Arklow. He and his children also lost their entitlement((No gloss)) to the(その,あの,というもの) titles of Prince and Princess of the(その,あの,というもの) United Kingdom and the(その,あの,というもの) styles Royal Highness and Highness.[5] Nevertheless, he retained(実行しつづける,雇っておく,抱える,保つ,保持する,持ちつづける,維持する) the(その,あの,というもの) style Highness as a member of a sovereign(1.主権者,君主,2.最高の,至高の,主権を有する,3.(S〜)ソブリン金貨) ducal house in Germany.

  5. ^ As a male-line grandson of the British Sovereign, Prince Charles Edward was a Prince of the United Kingdom with the qualification of Royal Highness, in accordance with Queen Victoria's Letters Patent of 30 January 1864 and of 27 May 1898. The suspension of his peerages under the Title Deprivation Act did not affect his place in the line of succession to the British throne. Under settled practice dating to 1714, his children, as legitimate male-line great-grandchildren of the British Sovereign, were Princes and Princesses of the United Kingdom with the qualification of Highness. However, their right to use these British titles and styles ceased with George V's Letters Patent of 30 November 1917.

  8. ^ The hereditary and legal privileges of the various German Royal, Princely, Ducal, and Noble families ended in August 1919 when the constitution of the Weimar Republic came into effect. The Weimar Republic did not ban the use of titles and the designations of nobility, as did Austria: the Reichstag passed legislation that made the former Royal and Noble titles part of these families' surname. Legally, he became Carl Eduard, Herzog von Sachsen-Coburg und Gotha.
