Summary European kings and queens, princes and princesses tell their family history in this six-part series. This episode follows Queen Victoria's search for a suitable princess for her eldest son, Edward (VII). It was no easy task. Victoria was very favourably disposed towards the German dukedoms and kingdoms. A German princess was sought but there was not an appropriate match. Rumour had it that the Czar was engaged in a similar hunt and had his eye on Christian IX's eldest daughter, Alexandra. Victoria also felt that Alexandra would be a good match for Edward and was determined that he marry her. Edward (VII) bowed to his mother's will but the wedding was postponed for a couple of years when Victoria's beloved husband, Prince Albert, suddenly died. Among their descendants are Queen Elizabeth, King Harald of Norway, Prince Michael of Kent, and Lord Harewood. (From Denmark, in English) (Part 3)
