    Primi affittuari

    Sul luogo, originariamente, sorgeva una cascina conosciuta come Gwynn's Farm e successivamente come Frogmore Farm. La Corona britannica la concesse in affitto alla famiglia Gwynn, seguita poi dagli eredi Aldworths. L'attuale Frogmore House venne costruita nel periodo dal 1680 al 1684 per Anne Aldworth ed il marito, Thomas May, un politico Tory del Sussex; il progetto era di Hugh May, zio di Thomas e architetto di Carlo II. Gli Aldworth continuarono ad abitarvi per alcuni anni prima di trasfer...

    Abitanti

    Nel 1790 la regina Carlotta, desiderando un ritiro in campagna per lei e le sue figlie nubili, liquidò l'affitto e riprese il possesso di Little Frogmore. Due anni dopo, prese Great Frogmore mentre l'abitazione più piccola venne demolita. James Wyatt venne incaricato di ingrandire e modernizzare Frogmore House. Alla morte della Regina nel 1818, Frogmore House passò alla sua figlia nubile più vecchia, la principessa Augusta. Dopo la morte della Principessa nel 1840, la Regina Vittoria la conce...

    Durante gli anni ottanta del XX secolo la casa subì un ampio intervento di restauro, che rivelò i dipinti murali di Louis Laguerr del primo Settecento. Nel 1988 era stata pensato che il Duca e la Duchessa di York, da poco marito e moglie, si trasferissero a Frogmore House, ma essi preferirono di no. La casa venne quindi aperta al pubblico nel 1990;...

    Queen Victoria and her husband had long intended to construct a special final resting place for them both, instead of the two of them being buried in one of the traditional resting places of British royalty, such as Westminster Abbey or St George's Chapel, Windsor. The mausoleum for the queen's mother was being constructed at Frogmore in 1861 when ...

    It was built by the architect A. J. Humbert, based on designs by Professor Ludwig Gruner. The mausoleum is in the form of a Greek cross, to a 70 ft diameter, with a central octagon of 70 ft height. It was designed in the Romanesque style. The mausoleum is built from Portland stoneand granite; Australian copper covers the roof. A Latininscription in...

    The building has been closed to the public since 2007, when it was found to be structurally unsound. Due to the marshy nature of the land, the foundations were generally waterlogged, and the lower elements of the building were disintegrating. It was reported in August 2011 that repairs might not be completed for a further ten years. In February 201...

    In 1869, the architectural illustrator Henry William Brewer undertook a commission from Queen Victoria to complete a series of paintings of the Mausoleum. The Queen took a great interest in watching Brewer at work, and herself appears in some of these intensely personal pictures. The paintings are now held by the Royal Collection Trust.
