'''The House of Windsor''' was founded by Letters Pattent in 1917 under King George V, this to appeal to British subjects during World War I, due to the House's previous name ''Saxe-Coburg and Gotha'' was deemed too German. The House of Windsor is currently composed by the descendants of King George V and Queen Mary. It used to include male line descendants of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, the other lines having died out (e.g. the Connaught line, the Fife line and the Athlone line). The descendants of Alfred, Duke of Edinburgh (second son of Queen Victoria) belonged to the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, as he became reigning duke in 1893, and the descendants of Charles Edward, Duke of Albany (brother of Princess Alice, Countess of Athlone) also belong to the latter house as he too became Duke of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha.
