Welcome to arvum! This photograph of Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, the consort of Queen Victoria, was taken 15 May 1860. Notice the books under his left hand: the Prince Consort was learned and cultured, as well as an accomplished musician. His wife’s birthday is commemorated every May in Canada as Victoria Day, which is also the official birthday of the reigning monarch. This is the class website for the Latin programme at Alcuin College in North Vancouver in Canada.
