CCR Talks: Happy Birthday Queen Christina! - December 6, 2022

We celebrate the birth of one of the most interesting of Rome’s 17th-century inhabitants – Sweden’s very own Queen Christina – a consummate linguist, mathematician, and avid art collector. The impact of this out-spoken – and outed – former queen at the papal court made life difficult for her and others. We chart her sojourn from the fastness of her native Sweden to the sprawling beauty of baroque Rome, where she lived an eventful life, meeting some of the most brilliant people of her generation and attracting myriad admirers to this very day.
