(From the publisher):
The young Victoria led a sheltered life, dominated by her mother and governess. As she grew older, her own strong will led to battles with her mother and Lord Conroy, who tried to rule the Princess' actions. Freedom came on the morning when, at eighteen, she was told she was Queen of England.
Always, there were men to guide her -- at first there was the handsome, devoted Lord Melbourne, then Albert, the love of her life; later there was Disraeli and John Brown.
It was a momentous reign, the time of Palmerston, Gladstone and Florence Nightingale, the Crimean War, the Indian Mutiny and the Boer War; the British Empire had reached its heights. Victoria saw her children scattered through the royal houses of Europe as she lived to become -- Victoria Victorious.
