misc_none.png 10:30 AM  -  11:30 AM A Visit with Queen Victoria Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Rebecca Shea   978-468-5577   rshea@hwlibrary.org
   

In 1837, teenaged 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. She and her husband, Albert, set an example of high moral character and dedication, a novelty in the royal house after generations of scandal. In a first person portrayal, Sally Mummey performs this living history in proper 19th century clothing resplendent with Royal Orders.   Free and open to the public, funded by the Friends.
