Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Christian Friedrich Freiherr von Stockmar (22 August 1787 - 9 July 1863) was an Anglo-Belgian statesman, who was a leading player in the affairs of the United Kingdom under Queen Victoria. He was born in Coburg of a Swedish family. He was educated as a physician, and became the personal physician of Prince Leopold of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha in 1816 at the time of Leopold's marriage to Princess Charlotte of the United Kingdom, the only child of King George IV. Charlotte died giving birth to a stillborn son about a year later (had she lived, Leopold would have been Prince Consort of the United Kingdom), and Stockmar stayed in Leopold's service as his private secretary, comptroller of the household, and political advisor.show more
