THE YOUNG VICTORIA by Lettice Cooper


Email this review


Each chapter in this account of Victoria's childhood and adolescence is given over to an important year in her life: her meeting with Uncle Leopold at four; her relationship with her beloved Feodore at 7; her introduction to the House of Lords at 14. All of Miss Cooper's research is authenticated in diaries, letters and journals, some written by the Princess herself. The anecdotes create a portrait of a strong willed child who struggled against the domination of an equally strong mother. The highlights of her life- her meeting with King George, the drama of her confirmation, her first introduction to her future husband,- provide insight into the young woman who became one of England's legendary queens.
