This series of lectures examines one of the most iconic figures of the 19th century. Her reign spanned from 1837 to 1901 and witnessed the industrial revolution, the dramatic expansion of the British Empire, and social and cultural transformations that have echoed to our own time. We will be examining famous contemporaries such as Lord Byron and Charles Darwin as well as some of the great royal residences frequented by Victoria and her husband Albert, such as Buckingham Palace, Balmoral Castle and Osborne House among others.
