Queen Victoria meant a lot to the people of the Black Country.
Many pubs and houses around the Black Country would have a picture of the Queen hanging in them to honor her.
Usually, if you were expecting to see the queen you would probably have to be in London and attending a fancy party or concert. But Queen Victoria decided to visit The Black Country back to unveil a statue of her late husband.
This was a big deal to the people who lived in the Black Country, as you can hear in this episode of 'Adventures Through Time'.
