About this product
- DescriptionChristopher Hibbert's acclaimed biography of Queen Victoria is as impressive and authoritative as the great woman herself. In 1837 an eighteen-year-old girl, raised by a German mother, inherited the throne of the United Kingdom. She was to reign as queen - and later Empress of India - for almost sixty-four years, presiding over twenty prime ministers and a period of unprecedented social and political change. Her era became synymous with moral rigidity and colonial expansion, and this absorbing biography of Queen Victoria, the unlikely figurehead of a vast and powerful empire, explores how the young monarch transformed herself into a formidable matriarch and the epitome of an age. Embracing her life and family, her politics and personality, her love for Prince Albert and her relationship with John Brown, Hibbert's touching biography is a persuasive portrait of a remarkable woman.
- Author BiographyChristopher Hibbert was educated at Radley and Oriel College, Oxford. He served as an infantry officer during the war, was twice wounded and was awarded the MC in 1945. His books include 'The Destruction of Lord Raglan' (which won the Heinemann Award for Literature in 1962), 'The English: A Social History', 'Cavaliers and Roundheads' and 'The Great Mutiny: India, 1857'. He also wrote biographies of Elizabeth I, George III, George IV, Nelson, Wellington and Samuel Johnson. He died in 2008.
