Being a Tudors fan, I knew very little about Queen Victoria so this was all new to me. How her public image evolved into that of a strict and virtuous “mother” to her people, but underneath seethed a willful child with a temper.

He is best known for establishing a new form of biography in which psychological insight and sympathy are vicctoria with irreverence and wit. She filled the castle with mementos of him and even raised a life-sized statue in remembrance at Balmoral.

The focus of this biography is definitely the incredible bond Victoria had with Albert. It was fascinating to read of Victoria’s guarded childhood, her growth through being a queen at age 18 to a young wife, to a mother of nine children, to losing Prince Albert, the love of her life, at an early age, and learning the inside stories of her reign, bei This book was a lot of fun to read.

The machinations of her Prime Ministers and the stresses they would place on her life during her long years on the throne. The book is endowed with a bibliography and a good index.

Maybe publishing the biography of a beloved queen, when people still remembered her fondly or otherwise was revolutionary in the s; it’s certainly common place now.
