THE REIGN OF QUEEN VICTORIA

A monumental, scholarly study of the reign of Queen Victoria, her life and that of her husband, Prince Albert, and their children, her private life as wife and widow, and her part in the growth of Empire -- a sympathetic but factual, analytical portrait. The three major phases are analyzed:- the young, inexperienced queen, guided by the expert hand of Lord Melbourne; the stubborn, wilful autocrat, who yielded only to Albert; the Disraeli period and his successors, Gladstone and Salisbury. A massive piece of research, written in the best traditions of authentic history.
