Saxe-Coburg and Gotha or Saxe-Coburg-Gotha (German: Sachsen-Coburg und Gotha) was the name given to the two German duchies of Saxe-Coburg and Saxe-Gotha in the present states of Bavaria and Thuringia, which were in personal union between 1826 and 1918. The two duchies were both among the Saxon duchies held by the Ernestine branch of the House of Wettin. The House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha was formerly the reigning house of Bulgaria and Portugal (Braganzca) with branches currently reigning in Belgium and the United Kingdom (the latter is now called the House of Windsor).
