True, however there is normally an exception made when the monarch
is a
queen reagent.

Is that a queen that takes part in chemical reactions with other
queens? :-)

Damn spell check subsitution. Should have been "regnant".

Queen Victoria did not alter the royal house name upon
her marriage to Prince Albert, nor was anything changed for her

I'm pretty sure that George V thought his house name was
Gotha, not Hanover; and as far as I know his father Edward VII
thought so too.

Had the thing only half way correct. Custom is for queens regnant not to
change their name to the husband's but the children/heirs do; hence
Edward VII being SCG.
