Day School: Queen Victoria's Family

Ref: C3742642

Queen Victoria and Prince Albert were the parents of nine children including the brilliant Vicky, later the German Empress Frederick, King Edward VII, Alfred, Duke of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha and the artistic Princess Louise, Duchess of Argyll. In this Day School we will consider the lives of Queen Victoria and her consort and of their children and grandchildren. The marriages of many of the latter, into the royal houses of Europe, earned Queen Victoria the sobriquet of 'Grandmama of Europe'.
