A Genealogy Cartoon about Queen Victoria and Her Relatives

A rather cute cartoon is actually an animated romp through a tale of ancestral inconsequence! It is from the album Queen Victoria.

You can view it on YouTube at: https://youtu.be/G7bFs56grzc or in the video player below:

My thanks to newsletter reader Gary Barton for telling me about this cartoon.

It’s wonderful, but if you listen carefully, it’s really NOT about Queen Victoria’s descendants. The singer is remembering her childhood visits to the country cottage of her great-aunts. A portrait on the wall, of a ferocious-looking ancestor (“the greatest, great-great-aunt of all”), resembled Victoria, so, to the child-singer’s imagination, she really was the Queen.
