House of Saxe-Coburg & Gotha

King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra were significant patrons of Fabergé, and formed a wonderful collection of his works. 


Much of the modern Royal Collection was acquired by the Hanoverians.  Enthusiastic collectors and patrons such as George III and George IV continued to collect paintings, drawings and furniture, whilst Queen Victoria and Prince Albert also supported the emergent art form of photography and contemporary artists.
