    1. Hourly history does a great job of covering many details in this overview of Queen Victoria's life it is informative and an easy read. She was a unique and strong willed woman, with unique views. I found it interesting that though she had 9 children she did not really care for mother hood, and had complicated relationships with her children. In her life she suffered much pain and loss, particularly when she lost her beloved husband Albert. A lot of enormous changes took place during Victoria's r [...]

    2. Born on May 24, 1819, at Kensington Palace to Prince Edward, the Duke of Kent and Strathearn and Princess Victoire of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld Victoria was born fifth in line to the throne of England. She was preceded by the Prince Regent, the Duke of York, the Duke of Clarence, and her father, the Duke of Kent, making the chance that she would succeed to the throne very small. Victoria’s childhood was far from happy. Raised by her German speaking mother, Princess Victoire, at the age of eleven, s [...]

    3. Within the first few pages of this book the phrase 'it does what it says on the tin' came to mind. A straightforward factual account of the key events in Victoria's life.But part way through, the narrative gained more depth, and more complexity. This is a small history book attempting to burst out of the confines of its hour. A good introduction that left me wanting to delve deeper .It also inspired me to commence an 1863 quotation collection:"Victoria’s personal physician Sir James Clark reco [...]

    9. The book covers the life of Queen Victoria. It notes that early in her reign she didn't know much about politics. It also says there were three attempts to assassinate her. A good part of the book deals with her relationship with Alfred, her husband. The book notes that he spoke this of his wife: 'her essential character is deeply flawed.' It goes into how Alfred did not want to be just a consort but wanted actual power and how he maneuvered things so that he got just that, part of his idea bein [...]
