A passionate princess, an astute and clever queen, and a cunning widow, Victoria played many roles throughout her life. Here BBC presenter Lucy Worsley recreates 24 of the most important days in Victoria's life, each of which gives a glimpse into the identity of this powerful, difficult queen and the contradictions that defined her. This lively, informed history is an intimate introduction to one of Britain's most iconic rulers as a wife and widow, mother and matriarch, a queen who simultaneously managed to define a socially conservative vision of Victorian womanhood, while also defying its conventions.
"Worsley gives us Victoria in all her infinite variety?queen and mother, matriarch and minx. I loved it."—Daisy Goodwin
