Victoria, Queen of England, and Empress of India

 
  7:00 pm - 8:45 pm

As Empress of India, Queen Victoria was never a token ruler. She intervened in Indian politics; commissioned artists and photographers to record the landscape and people; sent her sons as ambassadors to the sub-continent and surrounded herself with the trappings of Indian conquest. In turn, Indian politics and society were fundamentally reshaped by her influence from afar. In this illustrated lecture, Miles Taylor talks about the significant effects India had on the Queen as well as the pivotal role she played in India.

Cost: £18.00
