    This compelling portrait of Victoria by the popular historian and biographer Alison Plowden (1931-2007) begins by describing the circumstances and the 'none too fragrant' reputations of the English royal family into which the future queen was born. Drawing extensively on Victoria's own diaries, the book traces her early life, upbringing and education, from her short 'private childhood', through the 'momentous Tuesday' on which she became Queen, to her marriage to Prince Albert in 1840. First published in 1981.
