Enlightened prince and idol to his wife.

Albert was the only husband of a British queen to have formally held the title of Prince Consort. Soon after their marriage, Albert began managing the royal household and advising Victoria on political issues. Albert also directed the construction of the famous Crystal Palace for the Great Exhibition in 1851. He was thought to have undue influence in politics, and the prejudice against him never fully dissipated until after his death. Upon Queen Victoria's death in 1901, Albert’s House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha succeeded the House of Hanover on the British throne.
