Who was Queen Victoria?
Reading Kate Hubbard's Who was Queen Victoria was a delightful thing to do after watching the movie The Young Victoria. Of course being of British decent and living in South Africa makes me adore British history and culture so much more than anything South African.
This book gives a lot of information about Queen Victoria - and it is written in a manner which enables one to remember a lot of what one has read even a time after reading the book. The book tells of Victoria and Albert's relationship as well as Victoria's difficulties with her difficult mother and fighting against regency. One sees what a great personality Victoria had and how strong her character was.
I think that this book is a perfect tribute to the woman who ruled the world!
