Brief Abstract of the Talk
Jane Franklin was the wife of John Franklin, governor of Van Diemen’s Land form 1837 to 1843. Unusually for women of her time, she became internationally famous. Her two ambitions were to live life to the full, and to make her husband a hero. Today her first ambition might bring her fame, but in the nineteenth century it was her second ambition which brought her stardom.
