Queen Victoria: the Woman Who Ruled the: The Woman Who Ruled the World (Who Was...?)
Victoria was just 18 years old when she was crowned Queen in 1837 - a tiny figure, with a will of iron. Never was there so queenly a queen. She made Britain great, and the people loved her for it. In 1861 tragedy struck, when her husband Albert died. The little Queen loved dogs and cream cakes and the troops who fought for her, but most of all she loved Albert. Dumb with grief, she hid herself away. Suddenly it seemed that the woman who had made the monarchy so strong would destroy it. Could anyone persuade Victoria to be Queen again?
