Edward, Duke of Kent
Person Male Born 2/11/1765 Died 23/1/1820
In 1818 the only legitimate grandchild of George III died, leaving the succession shaky. The three unmarried sons of the king rushed to marry and produce an heir. 53-years-old Edward won, marrying Princess Victoria of Saxe-Coburn-Saalfeld who, a year later, produced the child who would become Queen Victoria.
Died at Sidmouth, Devon when his daughter was not yet a year old and only a few days before his father.
