(Sarah Forbes Bonetta) a African Princess
  Sarah at the age of 8, I was taken to England, June of 1850, to meet with Queen Victoria. She became her godmother and benefactor.
As rare as it was for her Majesty to received guests, she took a liking to her. She owe her life to the Queen and the great Captain Forbes.
The story of her life can be read in the book "At Her Majesty's Request" by Walter Dean Myers

Is this just the most. I adore corsets.
I am training to wear a corset at all times. A proper Victorian Lady wears her corset to complete her look.
