Grandmother of Europe: Part 2

Grandmother of Europe: Part 2

Queen Victoria and Prince Albert had a vision of a united, peaceful Europe under enlightened Anglo-German guidance. They planned their children’s marriages to support this goal. This course will examine the nine marriages as they were planned and realized, with the actual results for Europe in the 20th century.

This program is three sessions: Tuesdays, 9:40 - 11:05 a.m. from July 11 - July 25

Cosponsored by Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at George Mason University (OLLI Mason).


Linda Smith specialized in the history of Victorian Britain as an undergraduate at Boston College and in graduate work at Oxford University. Retired after a career as a research librarian, she lives in Williamsburg, Virginia, where she has successfully taught courses for OLLI at William and Mary.
