|Edward Augustus Duke Of Kent And Strathern
Edward Augustus Duke Of Kent And Strathern
Cause of his death was Pneumonia.
The Duke of Kent had a number of mistresses, most notably Adelaide Dubus (with whom he may have had an illegitimate daughter) and later Julie de St Laurent. However, he remained single until 1818 when, following the death of the only legitimate grandchild of George III, Princess Charlotte Augusta of Wales, the succession began to look uncertain. The Prince Regent and his younger brother, the Duke of York, though married, had no surviving legitimate children. King George's surviving daughters were all past likely childbearing. The other unmarried sons of King George III, the Duke of Clarence (later King William IV), the Duke of Kent, and the Duke of Cambridge, all rushed to contract lawful marriages and provide an heir to the throne. (The sixth son of King George III, the Duke of Sussex, had already married, albeit in contravention of the Royal Marriages Act of 1772.)
Edward married someone Adelaide DUBUS.
Edward next married.
