Re: New QVD and a question
User logged in as Stefan
A new QVD was born
Chloe Prinzessin von Sachsen-Coburg und Gotha was born to Daniel Pr. von Saxe-Coburg-Gotha and his wife Eileen. http://eurohistoryjournal.blogspot.com/2020/04/the-newest-qvd-little-saxe-coburg-and.html
The text mentions that Daniel's father's marriage was considered morganatic.
My question is why ?
The last equal marriage from a male member of the SXG family was the brief (1942-46) marriage of Pr. Friederich-Josias to Grafin Victoria of Solms-Baruth .
Pr. Andreas married a commoner and so did his son Hubertus.
Why was Pr. Adrian's (pr. Andreas brother's brother and Pr.Daniel's father) wedding considered morganatic ?
Mere lack of consent from the head of the family ? Direct opposition ?
Thanks in advance.
Read somewhere that Prince Adrian simply did not aks for consent when he married.
