Queen Victoria – The Life of a Glorious Monarch

Victoria, Queen of Great Britain and sovereign of an empire on which the sun never set, inherited the throne when she was 18 years old. In this illustrated lecture, Leslie Goddard, (who holds a Ph.D. from Northwestern University, specializing in American studies and U.S. history,) chronicles Victoria’s astonishing reign of 64 years. Why, more than 100 years after her death, does Victoria’s influence endure today?

Using a wealth of photographs, paintings and objects, Goddard will explore Victoria's rise to the throne at age 18, her marriage to Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg, and her astonishing reign for 64 years.  Meet the woman behind the social images, who could be formidable and majestic, but also emotional, passionate and deeply sentimental.

Programs are open to the public; $15 requested donation. No reservation needed.
