The sixth child of Queen Victoria, Princess Louise married the Marquis of Lorne in 1871 and spent five years in Canada between 1878 and 1883 where he was Governor-General. A gifted sculptor, she avoided royal protocol as far as possible and dedicated herself to her own work and such issues as the education of women.
