The whole of Britain and her Empire was a massive enterprise that spanned the globe and governed nearly a quarter of the world's people at the end of the 19th century. At the center of it was Victoria herself, a woman as formidable as her empire and equally capable of making history.
 
Here we celebrate this singular monarch and her times with a collection of insightful biographies, histories both serious and lighthearted, guides to tourist destinations, pictorial archives, and of course the wildly popular new PBS Masterpiece series based on the first years of Victoria's reign as the most powerful woman in the world.
