  1. Her Majesty's full name is Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor. It was her grandfather King George V (not her father who later became King George VI in 1936) who changed the family name. The original family name was Saxe-Coberg Gotha, which was Prince Albert, Queen Victoria's husband's family name. The reason for the change in the family surname was because Saxe-Coberg-Gotha was a German surname and there was a lot of Anti-German sentiment in England at the end of WWI. King George V chose the name Windsor, not only because of it being the name of Windsor Castle which at that as it remains now, one of the royal family's favorite residences, but because the name was more Anglocized and it linked the royals with their subjects. Though it was decreed after the birth of Prince Andrew in 1960 that all royal children should carry the surname Mountbatten-Windsor, in public members of the family go by Windsor. Mountbatten, of course is the surname of the Queen's husband Prince Philip. Of course the children of Princess Anne are exempt from carrying the name of Mountbatten-Windsor because Zara and Mark carry their father's name, Phillips.(see) The British House of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha (Sachsen-Coburg und Gotha) began with Queen Victoria's marriage to the German Prince Albert of Sachsen-Coburg und Gotha in 1840. Prince Albert (1819-1861) was also responsible for the introduction of German Christmas customs (including the Christmas tree) in England. The British royal family still celebrates Christmas on December 24th rather than on Christmas Day, as is normal English custom. Queen Victoria's eldest daughter, the Princess Royal Victoria, also married a German prince in 1858. Prince Philip is a direct descendent of Queen Victoria through her daughter Princess Alice, who married another German, Ludwig IV, Duke of Hesse and by Rhine. Victoria's son, King Edward VII (Albert Edward, "Bertie"), was the first and only British monarch who was a member of the House of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha. He ascended to the throne at the age of 59 when Victoria died in 1901. "Bertie" reigned for nine years until his death in 1910. His son George Frederick Ernest Albert (1865-1936) became King George V, the man who renamed his line Windsor.
