German Royalty. August Ludwig Viktor, son of Prince Ferdinand of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha and his wife Princess Maria Antonia Koháry, was born in Vienna. On April 20, 1843, he married Princess Clémentine d'Orléans, daughter of Louis Philippe, King of the French, and his wife Queen Maria Amalia. The ceremony took place at the Château de Saint-Cloud. The couple decided to reside in France. The marriage produced five children, all of whom survived to adulthood. With the onset of the Revolution of 1848, August and his family left France. The prince went to Vienna, where he was an officer with the Austro-Hungarian Army. He was a Major-General in the Austrian Army and a Lieutenant-General in the Saxon Army. The prince was also a member of the Austrian House of Lords. He did not live to see his youngest son become ruler of Bulgaria. The Prince of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha died in 1881, ostensibly from bronchitis. His tomb with its effigy is positioned next to that for his wife at Saint Augustine's Church in Coburg, Germany. Both tombs are immediately behind the red and gold coffin for their son Ferdinand I, Tsar of Bulgaria(bio by: Anne Philbrick)
