Charles Edward, 2nd Duke of Albany

Charles Edward, 2nd Duke of Albany, Duke of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha (1884-1954), as a member of the Borussia Corps of Bonn University in about 1904. The Borussia Corps was open only to students of the highest rank. Members spent their time drinking and fencing, and one of their proudest achievements was a duelling scar: in 1904 Charles Edward ('Charlie') received a scar on the forehead. Charlie became Duke of Saxe-Coburg in 1899. Prince Alfred's only son had died and although the succession naturally passed to Prince Arthur and then his son, they declined and so Charlie was was uprooted from Eton and England at the age of thirteen and sent to Germany, despite hardly knowing the language. At the Kaiser's suggestion he was sent to Lichterfield military academy at Potsdam and he went on from there to Bonn. He inherited the Coburg title a week after his sixteenth birthday
