Consorts of the monarchs of Great Britain and the United Kingdom (1707–2012)

Consorts of the monarchs of Great Britain and the United Kingdom (1707–2012)

All the wives of kings in this list (dating from the Act of Union, 1707) were styled queen, their territorial title complementing that borne by their husbands as king. Neither Prince George of Denmark (1653–1708) nor Prince Philip, duke of Edinburgh (b. 1921), received titles that explicitly recognized their position as husband of a queen regnant, although Prince Philip was made a prince of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in 1957. Prince Albert (1819–1861), however, was formally created prince consort in 1857.
