Victoria

A Soldier's Daughter - S2-E1

Factual error: Captain Souter is shown lying dead in the snow following the massacre at Gandamak. In fact, Thomas Souter was one of the few who survived to be captured by the Afghans and was later freed.

Season 2 generally

Factual error: Edward Drummond was assassinated in 1843 by a madman who mistook him for Sir Robert Peel. In the series, he is still very much alive three years later.

An Ordinary Woman - S1-E5

Factual error: Schloss Rosenau, Prince Albert's home in Coburg, looks nothing like the place depicted. It is not atop a hill and actually looks more like a country house than a fairytale castle.

The Sins of the Father - S2-E4

Question: It shows the birth of Queen Victoria's 1st son, then the death of Prince Albert's father, but his father died 29th January 1844 and Prince Albert wasn't born until 6th August 1844, how is that possible?

Answer: There seems to be some confusion here. The first son born to Queen Victoria and her husband, Prince Albert, was also named Albert (later known as King Edward VII), and was born in August 1844. Prince Albert, Sr.'s father, Ernest I of Germany, died the same year his grandson was born, but the timing of his death would have no bearing on when Albert Jr. was conceived and born. Prince Albert, Sr., Victoria's husband and Albert Jr.'s father, died in 1862. (Victoria's husband was always known as Prince Albert, never as "King Albert" which may explain the confusion.)

Answer: Pregnancy takes 9 months. Late January to early August is only a little over 6. Albert was conceived before his father died.
