English: Hereditary Prince Alfred of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha (Alfred Alexander William Ernest Albert; 15 October 1874 – 6 February 1899) was born a member of the British Royal Family. By 1899, Alfred began exhibiting severe symptoms of the syphilis he had acquired as a young and wild Guards officer. It is sometimes claimed that he married Mabel Fitzgerald in Potsdam in 1898. However this marriage would be contrary to the House laws and void. Unfortunately for this theory, which was first published in the 1940s, and for Mr. Bush's claimed ancestry, there is no evidence Alfred and Mabel ever met; at the time of their alleged civil and religious marriages in 1898 (of which no records exist) Mabel was under 14 years old, and when Mabel contracted a documented marriage to William Clarke Hadoke in 1910 she is described as a spinster rather than a widow. Alfred died by suicide at the age 24 years.
