New book, 191 pages. Queen of Geat Britain and of an empire on which the sun never set, Victoria gave her name to an age that came to represent progress, expansion and industrialisation. She ruled for an unprecedented 64 years, coming to the throne in 1837 at the tender age of 19 and dying in 1901. This book looks at every aspect of this remarkable era including politics, art, science and society. Deborah Jaffe has written an illuminating and incisive overview of Victorias life and reign, looking at why, a century after her death, her influence still endures, illustrated with two hundred sumptuous images, this is a fascinating tribute to one of the greatest British monarchs.
