Key Stage 3 | Subject: History | Topics: Victorians, Empire | Session Type: Route-based and classroom
Queen Victoria’s interest and involvement with India began years before she was officially crowned Empress of India in 1876, and gradually India came to be seen as the ‘jewel in the crown’ of the British Empire.
This session will explore Victoria’s relationship with India, focusing particularly on the Queen’s friendship with Duleep Singh, the deposed Maharaja of the Sikh Empire. Through examination of primary sources from Victoria’s reign, students will analyse the complexities of British rule in India and Victoria’s role within it.
