The Newest QVD: A Little Saxe-Coburg and Gotha Has Arrived!



Note: Many thanks to our dear friend Hein Bruins, of Hein's Royal Genealogy Page, who kindly informed us of the birth of this newest descendant of Queen Victoria!

Daniel Prinz von Sachsen-Coburg und Gotha and his wife Eileen Chen have welcomed a daughter, whom they have named Chloe. Chloe Prinzessin von Sachsen-Coburg und Gotha was born within the past few days. The newborn's parents, Daniel and Eileen, married on 4 July 2017 at Bern, Switzerland. Chloe joins an older brother: Chadwick Prinz von Sachsen-Coburg und Gotha (b.16 May 2018).

Daniel is a son of the late Prince Adrian of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha (1955-2011) and Adrian's first wife Lea Rinderknecht (b.1960). Adrian and Lea married in 1984 and had two sons: Simon (b.1985) and Daniel (b.1988). As the marriage was considered morganatic, neither Simon or Daniel (or Daniel's offspring) are considered to be Saxe-Coburg and Gotha dynasts.

According to royal genealogist Daniel Willis, Chloe is 350th in the line of succession to the British throne. In addition to being a descendant of Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom, Chloe of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha is also a descendant of Victoria's half-sister Feodora. 

The newest Coburg was born prematurely on March 24. Given the present worldwide health crisis, the baby remains under care and isolated.

Baby Chloe's great-uncle is Prince Andreas of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, the Head of the Ducal House. 

We send our congratulations to the couple on this happy occasion!
