Adelaide

Designation for a wine bottle, which in 1958 in Staffordshire (England) for a sherry was produced. She was 1.5 meters long, summed up 26 gallons Wine (around 98.5 liters) and weighed 220 pounds (~ 110 kilograms). The bottle was named after the Saxe-Meiningen Princess Adelheid Amalie Luise Therese Carolin (1792-1849). This married in 1818 the British heir to the throne William and converted her name from Adelheid in Adelaide. In 1830 her husband became William IV (1765-1837) new king and Adelaide Queen of Great Britain and Hanover. At the proclamation of the colony of South Australia in 1836, the new capital of the English Queen was named in honor of Adelaide. See also below bottles and wine vessels,
