Andreas, Prince of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha

Andreas, Prince of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha (Andreas Michael Friedrich Hans Armin Siegfried Hubertus) (b. Kassel, March 211943) has been the head of the Ducal Family of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha and titular Duke of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha since 1998, as he is descended from the House of Wettin who ruled Saxe-Coburg and Gotha.

The Prince was born to Prince Friedrich Josias and the former Countess Viktoria-Luise of Solms-Baruth. He became heir-apparent to the Headship on March 6 1954, when his father became the Head. Prince Andreas succeeded to the Headship on his father's death on January 23 1998.

In Hamburg on 31 July 1971, Andreas married Carin Dabelstein (b. 16 July 1946). The marriage, although unequal is not morganatic, and was authorized by his father. They have had three children, who inherit the ducal styles and titles:
#Princess Stephanie Sibylla of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha (b. Hamburg, 31 January 1972).
#Hereditary Prince Hubertus Michael of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha (b. Hamburg, 16 September 1975), the heir-apparent to the Headship.
#Prince Alexander Philipp of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha (b. Coburg, 4 May 1977).

He is currently in the line of succession to the British throne being a great-grandson of Queen Victoria's youngest son Leopold, Duke of Albany. However, were the Dukedom of Albany to be restored, he would not be the holder. Instead, Hubertus Prinz von Sachsen-Coburg und Gotha would inherit the dukedom as heir-male of the last Duke of Albany through his grandfather John Leopold, Hereditary Prince of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha [http://www.heraldica.org/topics/royalty/HGSachsen-CG.htm] . Prince Andreas has both German and British nationality. He performed military service from 1966 to 1968. Prince Andreas completed a traineeship in timber management from 1969 to 1971.
