While the Governor of Virginia is elected by the people, his wife is not. Some wives come to this position willingly, others are duty bound by their husband’s choices. However, each wife brings her own unique personality to shape the role of the Governor’s lady. Experience the Governor’s Palace through the eyes of three Governor’s ladies — Mrs. Dorothea Henry, Mrs. Martha Jefferson, and Mrs. Elizabeth Randolph — as they navigate duty versus desire.
