“You call me the little Queen,” she told her uncle the King of the Belgians; “my body is little, but my heart is not.”
Edith Sitwell’s endearing portrait of the young Victoria chronicles her unlikely ascension to the throne: spanning the succession crisis of King George III, her enduring love and marriage to Prince Albert, and her strength and power in a male dominated world.
Weaving in Victoria’s personal letters and diaries, Sitwell breathes life into the Queen’s relationships with her family and her court. A rich exploration of Victoria’s reign and a social document of Victorian Britain, Victoria of England vividly illustrates the life of the iconic monarch with insight and emotion.
