Albert of Saxony
Birth: Apr. 23, 1828
Death: Jun. 19, 1902

Saxony Monarch, Germany Army Field Marshal. Born Frederick Augustus Albert Anton Ferdinand Joseph Karl Maria Baptist Wilhelm Xavier Georg Fidelis, he was the eldest son of Prince Johann of Saxony and Amalie Auguste of Bavaria. He studied for one year at university in Bonn before leaving to serve in the German Schleswig-Holstein campaign of 1849 against the Danes. In June 1853 Albert married Princess Carola, daughter of Gustav, Prince of Vasa, but the couple had no children. While a Crown Prince, he served as a General of infantry during the Seven Weeks' War in 1866; and during the Franco-German War of 1870 to 1871, he commanded the German army of occupation in France. He was promoted first to Inspector General of the Imperial German Army, then to the rank of Field Marshal. On the death of his father in October 1873, the Crown Prince succeeded to the throne. Under his rule, he approved reforms in local administration, education, and taxation, encouraged industrialization, and the Saxon monarchy became constitutional. Upon his death at age 74, his brother succeeded. (bio by: Iola)
