: Queen Victoria came to the throne in 1837 and died in 1901 at the age of nearly eightytwo. For more than 60 years she presided over 20 governments, and a country undergoing profound economic, social and political change. In Queen Victoria: A Personal History we see Victoria develop from the young, inexperienced Queen in thrall to the charming, cynical and devoted Melbourne, to the intimidating matriarch who so terrified members of her household that they were once seen scurrying away across the lawn at Sandringham, crying The Queen! The Queen! when she appeared unexpectedly at the garden door. Victoria and her ministers are brought vividly to life, as are all those whom the Queen came to know, to love, dislike, revere or denigrate, from her mother s friend Sir John Conroy to her own adored husband, Prince Albert, who patiently endured her petulant tantrums. This biography is based on a wide variety of sources, including the Queen s voluminous correspondence and intimate journals.
