Her mother had already 2 children from her previous, 1st marriage.

https://en.wikipedia.org/...a_of_Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld


Princess Victoria of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld (Marie Louise Victoire; 17 August 1786 16 March 1861)

On 21 December 1803 at Coburg, a young Victoria married (as his second wife) Charles, Prince of Leiningen (17631814), whose first wife, Countess Henrietta Sophie of Reuss-Ebersdorf (17671801), had been her aunt. The couple had two children, Prince Carl, born on 12 September 1804, and Princess Feodora of Leiningen, born on 7 December 1807.


The death of Princess Charlotte of Wales, the wife of Victoria's brother Leopold, in 1817, prompted a succession crisis. With Parliament offering them a financial incentive, three of Charlotte's uncles, sons of George III, were prepared to marry. One of them, Prince Edward, Duke of Kent and Strathearn (17671820) proposed to Victoria and she accepted. The couple were married on 29 May 1818 at Amorbach and on 11 July 1818 at Kew, a joint ceremony at which Edward's brother, the Duke of Clarence and St Andrews, later King William IV, married Adelaide of Saxe-Meiningen. Shortly after their marriage, the Kents moved to Germany, where the cost of living would be cheaper. Soon after, Victoria became pregnant, and the Duke and Duchess, determined to have their child born in England, raced back Arriving at Dover on 23 April 1819, they moved into Kensington Palace, where Victoria gave birth to a daughter on 24 May 1819, Princess Alexandrina Victoria of Kent, later Queen Victoria.[4] An efficient organiser, Sir John Conroy, ensured the Kents' speedy return to England in time for the birth of their first child.

Here's a big what if: what if, like Elizabeth !, Victoria had remained a virgin queen?  Given her immense longevity, who might have been next in line for the throne if she had no issue? And what would she have been like without Albert's steadying influence? Would she have caused the end of the monarchy?

Who would be next of kin?

I think it would have been the children of the Duke of Cambridge that was George III's son.

Mmm, thank you.

Recently I have been looking at the Dutch succession, when Wilhelmina and/or Juliana didn't have issue.
The Dutch were a bit afraid that one of the German princes, related to DRF would succeed

George might not have made his illegal marriage, if he'd been the next in line to his cousin Victoria.  Interesting what-if!

When Queen Victoria's uncle Ernest Augustus, Duke of Cumberland became King of Hanover in 1837, did he still have a claim to the English throne?   
If Yes, could his grandson Ernest Augustus (1845-1923) succeed Queen Victoria?
