Ramsgate Affair

In 1835, Victoria’s mother and advisor, Sir John Conroy, took the princess on a tour of the country. Toward the end of the tour, in the fall of 1835, Victoria became ill and headed towards the salty sea air in Ramsgate for her recovery. While desperately ill, Sir John Conroy sought to take advantage of the situation and force her to sign papers that would make him the power behind the throne.
