Summary
  • "Drawing on Victoria's own diaries, which she first started reading when she was a student at Cambridge University, Daisy Goodwin brings us the brilliantly imagined life of a young woman about to make her mark on her nation--and the world."--Jacket
  • Less than a month after her eighteenth birthday, Alexandrina Victoria is roused from bed with the news that her uncle William IV has died and she is now Queen of England. The men who run the country have doubts about whether this young woman can rule the greatest nation in the world. Despite her age the young queen is no puppet. She is quite happy being queen with the help of her prime minister, Lord Melbourne, who may be old enough to be her father but is the first person to take her seriously. She went on to make her mark on her nation-- and the world
Summary
With prominent men doubting her ability to rule and little preparation to serve as monarch, a young Queen Victoria finds the confidence to rule with help from Prime Minister Lord Melbourne
