Schloss Rosenau, called in English The Rosenau or Rosenau Palace, is a former castle, converted into a ducal country house, between the towns of Coburg and Rödental, formerly in Saxe-Coburg, now lying in Bavaria, Germany.
Schloss Rosenau is perhaps most notable as the birthplace and boyhood home of Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, who in 1840 became the consort of Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland.
Prince Albert, husband of Queen Victoria, was born at Schloss Rosenau.
He died at the early age of 42, plunging the Queen into a deep mourning which lasted for the rest of her life.
There is also a ‘legend’ that he was having a body piercing, still holding his name. A ring through the penis was frequently worn by Victorian gentlemen. The functional reason was to have a perfectly smooth trouser line. The ring was trapped to the thigh.
