This name derives from the Old High German name “Adalberaht”, composed of two elements “*aþalaz” (noble, nobleman, aristocratic, eminent, glorious, excellent) plus “*berhtaz” (light, bright, clear, shining one), cognate of the Old English (Anglo-Saxon) name “Æþelbeorht” (Noble-bright). The Latinized forms of the VIII century are Alpertus and Albertus. 1) Albert the Great, also known as Albert of Cologne, is a Catholic saint. He was a German Dominican friar and a bishop who achieved fame for his comprehensive knowledge of and advocacy for the peaceful coexistence of science and religion. 2) Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha (Francis Albert Augustus Charles Emmanuel; later The Prince Consort; 1819–1861) was the husband of Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. 3) Adalbert of Prague (956-997), was a Czech Catholic saint, a bishop of Prague and a missionary martyred in his efforts to convert the Baltic Prussians. He evangelized Poles and Hungarians. Adalbert was later appointed patron saint of Bohemia, Poland, Hungary, and Prussia.
