Victoria in Dover (German title: Mädchenjahre einer Königin) is a 1954 Austrian historical romantic comedy film directed by Ernst Marischka and starring Romy Schneider, Adrian Hoven and Magda Schneider.[1] It is a remake of the 1936 Erich Engel film Victoria in Dover, which was based on a 1932 play by Sil-Vara. Romy Schneider's performance as a spirited young royal was a lead-in to her best known role in Sissi and its sequels, although Marischka had originally intended to cast Sonja Ziemann as Victoria.


After her Prime Minister Lord Melbourne arranges a marriage for her with the German Prince Albert, the young Queen Victoria decides to leave London and spend some time in Kent. While there she meets a handsome young German and falls in love, unaware that he is her intended husband Albert.
