Educated privately, and at Edinburgh, Oxford, and Cambridge, in 1863 he married Alexandra, the eldest daughter of Christian IX of Denmark. They had three sons and three daughters: Albert Victor (1864-92), Duke of Clarence; George (1865-1936); Louise (1867-1931), Princess Royal; Victoria (1868-1935); Maud (1869-1938), who married Haaken VII of Norway; and Alexander (born and died 1871).

As King, he carried out several visits to Contintental capitals, which strove to allay international animosities.
