This is the first in the 4 book series of Queen Victoria. This very interesting novel covers her childhood to 18 years old when she becomes Queen of England;

Young Princess Victoria was never allowed to be alone. She was always protected from political intrigue and royal scandal-a virtual prisoner of her ambitious mother and scheming lover.
It didn't take long for Victoria to become aware of the sinister conflicts surrounding her. There were those who were obsessed with usurping her future power by either violence or marriage. And there were those who were determined she would never take the throne.
