About this product
- DescriptionQueen of Great Britain and ruler of an empire on which the sun never set, Victoria gave her name to an age that came to represent progress, expansion and industrialization. She ruled for an unprecedented 64 years, coming to the throne in 1837 at the young age of 19 and dying in 1901. This book is an illuminating and incisive overview of Victoria's life and reign, revealing her happy marriage to Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg, her subsequent friendship with the ghillie John Brown, and showing how she went on to celebrate both her Gold and Diamond Jubilees. Deborah Jaffe looks at every aspect of a remarkable era, including its politics, art, science and society and shows why, over a century after her death, Victoria's influence endures today. Accompanied with over 200 glorious images, this is a fascinating tribute to one of the greatest British monarchs.
