Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Major-General Alexander Augustus Frederick William Alfred George Cambridge, 1st Earl of Athlone KG GCB GCMG GCVO DSO PC ADC(P) FRS (born Prince Alexander of Teck; 14 April 1874 – 16 January 1957), was a close relative of the British Royal Family, as well as a British military commander and major-general who, between 1924 and 1930, served as the Governor-General of the Union of South Africa, and between 1940 and 1946, as the 16th Governor General of Canada. Prince Alexander was born in London, to the Duke and Duchess of Teck, and was educated at Eton College before moving on to Sandhurst for training as an officer. He rose in rank through his service in African campaigns and the First World War, receiving numerous honours and decorations, including elevation to the peerage as the Earl of Athlone, after he relinquished his German title of Prince of Teck in the Kingdom of Württemberg. Between his two viceregal tenures, Athlone served as Chancellor of the University of London, and after his period as Governor General of Canada, he sat on the organising committee for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II.
