VOGEL, Sir Julius
(1835-1899)
   UK politician who spent much of his professional life in NEW ZEALAND and whose sf novel, Anno Domini 2000, or Woman's Destiny (1889), set partly in New Zealand and Australia, treats the dawning 21st century as both benignly prosperous and much obsessed with matters of royalty. The current British Emperor causes much fuss in the USA when he refuses to approve any change in the succession laws which would permit a female to succeed to the throne. But after a war all ends well, with various women achieving their destiny in a series of marriages.
