Grandchildren of Victoria and Albert

A list of the grandchildren of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, all of whom were therefore either siblings or first cousins. Victoria and Albert had 42 grandchildren altogether, of whom two (the youngest sons of Prince Alfred and Princess Helena) were stillborn and two more, Prince Alexander John of Wales and Prince Harold of Schleswig-Holstein, died shortly after birth. Their first grandchild was the future German Emperor William II, who was born to the Princess Royal, on 27 January, 1859; the youngest was Prince Maurice of Battenberg, born on 3 October, 1891, to Princess Beatrice. Princess Alice, Countess of Athlone, was the last of Victoria and Albert's grandchildren to die. She died of old age on 3 January, 1981.

Prince Albert only lived long enough to see two of his grandchildren, while Queen Victoria lived long enough to see not only her grandchildren, but many of her great-grandchildren as well. Aside from the four boys who died as infants, Victoria was predeceased by several of her grandchildren before her own death in 1901:

Victoria, Princess Royal

The eldest child of Victoria and Albert, Victoria, called "Vicky" was born on 21 November, 1840. She married then-Prince Frederick of Prussia on 25 January, 1858. They had eight children.
