Will revolution in Europe threaten Victoria’s reign?
Victoria, Season 3
Jenna Coleman returns as Her fearless Majesty Queen Victoria in an all-new season of the hit drama on MASTERPIECE
Season 3 Premiere of Victoria
Friday, December 21, 2018 @ 7:00 pm MPT Visitors Center Owings Mills, MD
It is 1848, and revolution is breaking out across Europe. In Britain, one woman stands between order and chaos: Queen Victoria. Jenna Coleman stars as the young but fearless monarch, facing a crisis that threatens to end her reign, on Victoria, Season 3, premiering January 2019 on MASTERPIECE on PBS.
As Season 3 gets underway, Victoria is pregnant with her sixth child. But she has much else on her mind, chiefly the Revolutions of 1848, when the downtrodden throughout Europe begin agitating for the overthrow of aristocratic rule.
In England, this discontent leads to Chartism, a set of demands for universal male suffrage, the secret ballot, equal representation for voters and other reforms that were considered radical by leading political figures during Victoria’s reign. As with many crusades, passions are aroused on both sides—sometimes violently. At the time, who knew if events might turn out like the French Revolution, which resorted to widespread use of the guillotine?
