What was the personality of Queen Victoria?

Queen Victoria and Lola Montez - contrary women personalities of the 19th century

Online lectures

Queen Victoria (1819-1901)
Queen Victoria's reign was the second longest in English history. An entire century has been named after her.
With her husband Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, she had numerous descendants who were married into important European ruling dynasties, so that Victoria can be described as the "grandmother of Europe".
After the death of her beloved husband, who died in 1861 at the age of only 42, she fell into deep grief that lasted until her own death in 1901.
The lecture describes the family life of the monarch and the sometimes difficult relationship with her children.

Lola Montez (1821 - 1861) - The Bavarian Pompadour
Lola Montez is definitely one of the most colorful personalities in Bavarian history. The many myths, scandals and stories about the beautiful dancer fueled the fascination that continues to this day. Her power over the king, which overthrew him and ultimately sparked the revolution of 1848, testifies to her strong personality. Despite all the provocations and scandals, Lola Montez was in her own way one of the first emancipated women of her time.
