2010 NF Release: Queen Victoria's Children

Release Date:  June 1, 2010

Queen Victoria and Albert, the Prince Consort, had nine children who, despite their very different characters remained a close-knit family. Inevitably, as they married into European royal families their loyalties were divided and their lives dominated by political controversy. This is not only the story of their lives in terms of world impact, but also of personal achievements in their own right, individual contributions to public life in Britain and overseas, and as the children of Queen Victoria and the Prince Consort. John van der Kiste weaves together the lives of each of these children and shows how their mother was the thread that kept the family together. It is a refreshing insight into one of history’s most popular royal families.



  1. I might have to get this one. After reading about Victoria in Notorious Royal Marriages I have become very interested in her. That was my first exposure to Victoria.

  2. Very Victorian around here. Nice new look too.

  3. I wonder if, with the recent rise of Queen Victoria's star in popular culture (the film), if we will see more historical fiction and nonfiction books releasing in the near future. Like "The Other Boleyn Girl"-effect or something. I know I would enjoy it if they did!! I love that there are so many historical films coming out this year (saw your comment on my post; I too am uber excited about these upcoming releases!) I really think that history is making a huge comeback in pop culture. Yay!!

  4. I agree with Allie's statement. There will be more Victorian themed items going around, which is fine by me. I've often wondered about Victoria, so here's my chance to read up on her and the family.
