..was not their actual name, the family changed it from Saxe-Coburg-Gotha because of the First World War (people didn't like Germans much!).
However, the surname of the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha was actually Wettin. The name Wettin comes from Wettin Castle, which the family named themselves after in around the year 1000.
