1902 Coronation of King Edward VII
Edward was the eldest son of Queen Victoria and ascended the throne on January 22, 1901 upon Victoria‘s death. Born in 1841 he had to wait a long time to succeed to the throne. He married Princess Alexandra of Denmark in 1863 who bore him three sons and three daughters.
The coronation was originally scheduled for June 26, 1902, but Edward had to undergo an emergency appendectomy operation, so the coronation was postponed until August 9, 1902.
