At eighteen, Princess Victoria of Kent became Queen Victoria of England, bitterly resented by most of her royal relatives. Willful, enchanting, tender, passionate, regal, her unique personality gave to an age its style and essential character - and every facet of that personality sparkles brilliantly in this jewel of a novel, told in the first person by Queen Victoria herself.

Victoria Victorious is a story to lose yourself in, recreating the public splendors and private joys and sorrows of the last of Europe's great royal figures, the Hanoverian feuds and scandals, the political struggles that were woven into the rich fabric of Victoria's sixty-four year reign.

Biographical novel about Queen Victoria of England. Very focused on her personal life with a smattering of politics, though we get the sense that the Queen wasn't all that interested in politics except where it affected her personal life anyway. Very interesting for the most part. After Prince Consort Albert dies it sort of drags. I wonder if the author did this intentionally? as in her version, after he dies Victoria is pretty much just waiting to die as well.

I enjoyed this book, but it was not as captivating as others I have read.
