Victoria Victorious The Story of ueen Victoria Summary ¶ 102 Read & download Victoria Victorious The Story of ueen Victoria Ther Then one morning at the age of eighteen Princess Victoria awoke to the news of her uncle William's death The almost forgotten princess was now ueen of England Even better she was finally free of her mother's iron hand and her uncles' manipulations Her first act as ueen was to demand that she be given a room and a bed of her ownVictoria's marriage to her German cousin Prince Albert was a blissfully happy one that produced nine children Albert was her constant companion and one of her most trusted advisors Victoria's grief after Prince Alber. Overall a very comprehensive informative read about ueen Victoria from her birth to her death As usual Plaidy provides an accurate account of the ueen and her relationships with those around her In my opinion Victoria s lack of a father figure while growing up which in turn leads her to seek the fulfillment of her emotional needs from the men that she meets in her life and in particular her husband Albert Albert is very different from Victoria Although very handsome Albert is a humorless man with the highest of moral standards who seeks to be regarded in his own right However he finds himself not only cast in Victoria s shadow but viewed as an outsider by the English people since he is of German descent Interestingly Tsarina Alexandra would face similar criticism from the Russian people when they sought someone on whom to blame their problemsWe find that Victoria s mothering skills need much to be desired and it s interesting to see how her deference to Albert in regard to the rearing of those children impacts how the children grow up and the type of people that they become Victoria s prime ministers are also featured in much of the book and again each of these men exhibit paternal characteristics to Victoria that makes her of a follower in my opinion than a strong leader It s only until later in the book that Victoria begins to grasp her role as ruler and the reader finds that she is able to contribute to the decision making processThere is so much detail that this almost 600 page read provides about Victoria but I would encourage you to read it for your herself to gain a very good understanding of Victoria Plaidy s narrative tone although told from the perspective of Victoria sounds similar to the other women about which she writes so that I instantly found myself hearing Plaidy tell the story and not necessarily Victoria It s not a bad thing but again something that I observed about Plaidy s writing style

Victoria Victorious Jean Plaidy375 starsThis is a fictional biography of ueen Victoria She had an unhappy childhood but she married someone she loved Albert they had 9 children who all lived This is a long book It s only the second book I ve read on ueen Victoria the first was only a month ago and also written by Plaidy but that one only included her childhood there are seuels to that so I will continue but with larger gaps in between Most of what I ve read about British royalty was from the Tudors and earlier on so 300 years earlier Some differences that happened in between included Royals being able to choose their spouses and I found it interesting how much travel they did to see each other after Victoria s children moved away to other countries England now also had a Prime Minister so decisions were not made by the monarchy though they were discussed between the PM and the monarchyIt was interesting to learn about ueen Victoria as well as the different world that England had become over 300 years I m not sure historically how her husband Albert is regarded but I was not a big fan given how he s described in this book Victoria loved him but I didn t like him much I found her family life both as a child and as an adult interesting than the politics in the book
