Queen VictoriaBook - 2003
Explores the private life and the public role of the young princess who inherited Britain's throne as a teenager and who became the symbolic head of the largest empire in the history of the world. Incorporates the findings of past studies and research to shed light on often-neglected aspects of Victoria's life and reign: her concern with gender roles, religion, politics, and Ireland; as well as her involvement with domestic issues and the great international conflicts of the era. Also demonstrates that Victoria was not only the queen who became an adjective, but also a highly quotable, multi-dimensional human being.
