Queen Victoria's young Black protégé who once lived in Gillingham
Sarah Forbes Bonetta was captured by the King of Dahomey in the mid-19th century. She was later rescued by Captain Frederick E Forbes who convinced the King to give her to Queen Victoria. The queen was impressed by her intellect and called her a princess. She became her godmother and invited her to make regular visits to Windsor. While Sarah never lived in the royal household, Queen Victoria placed her with the Schoen family, former missionaries in Africa who lived in Gillingham.
