History tells of a glorious, golden reign and an empire on which the sun never set. But history does not often recall that during her rule there were seven attempts to assassinate beloved Vicky, Empress of Nearly Bloody Everything. Who WERE these would be killers? Find out in this fascinating tale told through melodrama, comedy and Rock n Roll!
