QUEEN VICTORIA


QUEEN VICTORIA

CHRISTOPHER HIBBERT    Book Number: 86167    Product format: Paperback

Hibbert's Victoria is not only the formidable, demanding, capricious queen of popular imagination, she is also often shy, diffident and vulnerable, prone to giggling fits and outbursts of weeping. Often censorious when confronted with her mother's moral lapses, Victoria herself could be passionately sensual, emotional and deeply sentimental. Ascending the throne in 1837 at the age of just 18, Victoria ruled as Queen for 64 years, an astounding length of time for any world leader. During her reign, she dealt with conflicts ranging from royal quarrels to war in Crimea and rebellion in India, saw monarchs fall, empires crumble, new continents explored, and England grow into a dominant global and industrial power. In this surprising new life of Queen Victoria (1819-1901) renowned historian Christopher Hibbert, master of telling anecdotes and peerless biographer, paints a fresh and intimate portrait at this complex woman who until now we only thought we knew. 557pp in well illustrated softback.
