Prince Albert, husband and consort of Queen Victoria dies at Windsor Castle, aged forty-two

Prince Albert, the husband of Queen Victoria, died at the age of forty-two after a sudden attack of typhoid fever at ten minutes to eleven p.m. in the Blue Room at Windsor Castle.  Albert, the father of Victoria's nine children, had shown ill-health for much of the year.  The death of the popular, innovative and reform-minded consort sent Queen Victoria into a mourning that lasted years.  He was buried temporarily in St. George's Chapel and then in 1871 at the family mausoleum at Frogmore near Windsor Castle.  (By John Osborne)
