  • Product Information
    • Among the most surprising of conclusions is the idea that the queen's childhood, characterised by isolated sadness is less accurate than originally thought.

      Lesser-known characters are explored, with Reverend George Davys (Victoria's first schoolmaster), her governess Louise Lehzen and her half-sister Feodora. This fascinating collection of characters enhances our perceptions of Victoria, who emerges as both wilful and submissive, fickle and affectionate and with the fiery temper of her Hanoverian ancestors.

      Written by the late Deirdre Murphy who was senior curator at Historic Royal Palaces and the curator of Victoria Revealed at Kensington Palace.
