During the 1860s Queen Victoria turned towards Germany in this decade. She visited and revisited the palaces where her mother and Prince Albert had grown up.

Cyril, did she return to Schloss Rosenau after Prince Albert's death? It seems to me she did, but I couldn't find anything after a brief google search. I would love to visit Rosenau.

Thanks Ellie, I think so, too. I think it got to be a kind of pilgrimage after she was widowed. It struck me as odd that prudish Victoria could stand to be in the company of Albert's brother Ernest year after year. I think she and Ernest's wife Alexandrine were close, though, perhaps that's how she managed.

I think the people she loved and cared about, excepting her sons, she could turn a blind eye to. Clearly she did so with Ernest, with Albert's horrific father, with John Brown and his brother Archie, etcetera. She could overlook faults in lots of people. I find her a fascinating woman - so modern and really she could be so kind in some ways with how she treated people from different class backgrounds and different races in general, but so strange in others!

He was an abusive husband who sent Albert's mother Louise away for having an affair, when he himself was riddled with STDs, had many lovers, and married her because of her wealth and the duchy needed the money. She was about sixteen when she married him. She died of cancer. Albert never saw her past the age of six - it devastated him.

Albert's brother Ernest was not so different from his father, either.

Yes, Queen Victoria did return to Schloss Rosenau.   
 
Princess Victoria of Prussia came to join her mother at Osborne in readiness for Queen Victoria's fortieth wedding on May 24, 1859. It was a very happy reunion. Princess Victoria only began to cry when she talked of Prince Wilhelm's left arm being so weak.

karma chamelion, I was able to learn: In 1845 Prince Albert visited Rosenau together with his wife Queen Victoria.

Thank you, Cyril! I want to see Rosenau someday, and Wolfsgarten in Darmstadt, too.

Both Victoria and Albert are my distant relations - sure they would be disgusted that the Succession, a 1000 year old Monarchy, as come down to the shenanigans set forth by a vulgar, low- council-climbing, grasping set of in-laws allegedly foisted fake royal heirs on the public.

It's being talked about in many circles and many royal forums.
