In 1837, teen-aged Victoria ascended to the British throne, untrained, and innocent. Those who would try to usurp her power underestimated this self-willed intelligent young woman whose mettle sustained her through her 63-year reign. Using Queen Victoria’s diary and letters, this program reveals the personal details of a powerful yet humane woman, who took seriously her role as monarch in a time of great expansion. Sally Mummey performs this living history in proper 19th century clothing, resplendent with Royal Orders, and is not be missed.
