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
