    **VICTORIAN ROYAL CONNECTIONS** A Pair Of Late 1700’s / Early 1800’s 10 Bore Bronze Ships Cannon On Wheeled Mahogany Deck Carriages Fired In Salute At The Duke of Connaught’s Wedding (Son Of Queen Victoria) Windsor Castle 13th March 1879 - 15200

    Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught and Strathearn, (Arthur William Patrick Albert; 1 May 1850 – 16 January 1942) was a member of the British Royal Family who served as the Governor General of Canada, the tenth since Canadian Confederation. Born the seventh child and third son of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, Arthur was educated by private tutors before entering the Royal Military Academy, Woolwich at the age of 16. Upon graduation, he was commissioned as a lieutenant in the British Army, where he served for some 40 years, seeing service in various parts of the British Empire. During this time he was also created a royal duke, becoming the Duke of Connaught and Strathearn, as well as the Earl of Sussex. At St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle, on 13 March 1879, Arthur married Princess Louise Margaret of Prussia, the daughter of Prince Frederick Charles and a great-niece of the German Emperor, Arthur's godfather, Wilhelm I. In 1911, he was appointed as Governor General of Canada, replacing the Earl Grey as viceroy. He occupied this post until he was succeeded by the Duke of Devonshire in 1916. He acted as the King's, and thus the Canadian Commander-in-Chief's, representative through the first years of the First World War. After the end of his viceregal tenure, Arthur returned to the United Kingdom and there, as well as in India, performed various royal duties, while also again taking up military duties. Though he retired from public life in 1928, he continued to make his presence known in the army well into the Second World War, before his death in 1942. He was Queen Victoria's last surviving son. These quality cannon were reputedly fired in salute at the Duke of Connaught’s wedding ceremony. The bronze cannon each measure 11 ½” overall length and are 10 Bore. The bores of each cannon are clean and their touch holes open. The cannon are working models of the weapons used on British War Ships in Napoleonic times (there are no visible manufacturer, date or proof marks). Each cannon is mounted on their original Mahogany wheeled deck carriages with blackened bronze fittings including thick rings on the left & right sides of each carriage which would be used for tying the cannon down prior to firing. Each cannon mounted on their carriages are 14 1/2" overall length and 9 1/2" wide. The price for this superb pair of bronze cannon with Victorian Royal connections includes UK delivery. NB. As antique black powder muzzle loading cannon no licence is required to own these items in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 15200
