ABOUT THE SERIES
The series is inspired by the six allegorical figures of Queen Victoria located in a memorial dedicated to her outside Buckingham Palace. The Victoria Memorial was inaugurated in 1901 and holds allegorical statues built within the very top of the monument representing Victoria's Virtues, which Queen Elizabeth II carried on. Each of the statues features a female representation of a virtue recognized in Her Majesty Queen Victoria during her reign.
ABOUT SAINT HELENA
The tiny, isolated Island of Saint Helena is an unlikely candidate as one of the most significant and influential nations in terms of global trade. Yet, when one looks back and examines our collective history, St. Helena repeatedly comes up as an integral component to global trade and commerce. The Island, which spans an area of mere 17 kilometers in length by 10 kilometers in breadth, was seen as an oasis by explorers and conquerors such as the Dutch, Portuguese, and English, all vying for control of the crucial port of call. By 1658 the British claimed the Island for themselves by making it a fortress and a hub for lucrative expeditions to India, China, and the rest of the eastern world. The company reached unprecedented heights of success, accounting for half of the world’s trade, establishing a monopoly in cotton, silk, salt, spices and tea, among many others, contributing to the vast and enormous wealth of the British empire. The Island, which remains a British colony to this day, was a vital component in the rise of the British empire.
