Meet Lady Temperance Flowerdiew Yeardley, wife of the governor, as she welcomes you to Virginia in November of 1619. Having lived in the colony for a decade, she has experienced both the hardships and the more hopeful years. Her husband was recently appointed the “Governor General” and knighted by the King! Hopes run high for the success of her husband’s new government, but no doubt she will also offer hints of the challenges he faces.
