Queen Victoria - A Royal Life (Biography)by Biographiq
Queen Victoria - A Royal Life is the biography of Queen Victoria, who was the Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland from June 20th, 1837, and the first Empress of India from May 1st, 1876, until her death on January 22nd, 1901. Her reign lasted 63 years and seven months, longer than that of any other British monarch. The period centred on her reign is known as the Victorian era. Though Victoria ascended the throne at a time when the United Kingdom was already an established constitutional monarchy in which the king or queen held few political powers, she still served as a very important symbolic figure of her time. The Victorian era represented the height of the Industrial Revolution, a period of significant social, economic, and technological progress in the United Kingdom. Victoria's reign was marked by a great expansion of the British Empire; during this period it reached its zenith, becoming the foremost global power of the time. Victoria was the granddaughter of George III, and was a descendant of most major European royal houses. She arranged marriages for her children and grandchildren across the continent, tying Europe together. She was the last British monarch of the House of Hanover. Queen Victoria - A Royal Life is highly recommended for those interested in the history and story of this admired Queen of the United Kingdom.

To tell the absolute truth I was very, very disappointed in this book. $17.00 for 52 pages. A very bad biography. No mention of any of her children and their bringing up etc. I shall be very careful before I buy another book through Barnes & Noble.
