Movie Info

History largely remembers Prince Albert as Queen Victoria's German husband whose untimely death inspired decades of mourning. However, a wealth of new material, soon to be published online, suggests he played a profound role in shaping Victorian Britain. With access to Albert's private papers in the Royal Archives and thousands of photographs in the Royal Collection, Professor Saul David examines Albert's significant influence on British culture, governmental policy and even international relations. Initially viewed with suspicion and hostility by the British public and dismissed by parliament, Albert faced an uphill struggle to carve out a role and be taken seriously. Such was his tenacity that by the time of his premature death, aged only 42, Albert was widely regarded as a forward-thinking reformer whose innovative ideas transformed the fortunes of the nation and created a legacy that lives on today. Victoria may have worn the crown, but Albert was king in all but name.
