By Anne Robertson
All things to do with Queen Victoria and her reign are very much the zeitgeist inspiring numerous biographies, movies and telemovies about her life and work.
In this presentation Anne will explore the mystique of this powerful woman who ascended the throne as a mere teenager of 18 years and became the most powerful woman in the world whose reign spanned 64 years, the duration of which was only recently eclipsed by that of Queen Elizabeth II.
She gave birth to nine children and survived eight assassination attempts over the course her lifetime. She was a symbol of steadfastness and security – Queen of a quarter of the world’s population at the height of the British Empire’s reach. Anne will examine the natal chart of Queen Victoria and charts of those who were major players during her reign including her husband, the Prince Consort Albert, some of her Prime Ministers and members of her household and other significant family members.
