Publisher's Summary

Who was Queen Victoria?

People all over the world are fascinated with royalty. And Queen Victoria herself, despite being gone for over 120 years, still holds us spellbound when we consider her life and legacy. She came to power during a time of great change. Technological change in the form of new inventions and rapid industrialization were taking place, as well as the great political changes that were occurring in governance.

In the first few years of her reign, great social upheavals, such as the potato famine in Ireland and the so-called “Chartists” revolts, were enough to keep even the most experienced of prime ministers up at night, yet Queen Victoria kept a steady hand throughout it all. Her beloved husband, Albert, was often viewed as a great stabilizing force for the queen, but when his life was cut short at just 44 years old, she had to look elsewhere for comfort.

Nevertheless, through all of the pain and heartache, the queen showed a determination few world leaders could match. And by the time of her Diamond Jubilee, which marked 60 consecutive years of her reign, there was no question of just how special she was. Here, in this audiobook, you will learn of this great monarch’s life and legacy like never before.

A few areas of major discussion are:

  • The queen’s domestic and foreign policies
  • Her relationships with her husband and children
  • Assassination attempts on her life
  • Major conflicts during her reign
  • The queen’s time with John Brown
  • The queen’s Golden and Diamond Jubilees
  • And much more!

Informative history of Queen Victoria and her Time

Typical Captivating History audiobook that covers the time and events leading up to Victoria's reign in the history of the UK's 19th century empire. Particularly interesting is her relationship with her husband Prince Albert and also with her 9 children. This audiobook covers many of the events that occured during her 60 year reign. Highly Recommended!!

Chock full of little known facts.

These books by Captivating History are always full of so many interesting details. This one is no exception. It's well researched and well presented. I do find it a little curious sometimes that the writing style is both formal and casual at the same time. I've noticed it in other Captivating History titles as well. It does not detract from the story, however, and there was just so much to learn about Queen Victoria and the legacy she left on Great Britain and the world.

short, but informative

I always love hearing stories about queen Victoria. the narrator was pretty amusing in some of his deliveries and side commentaries.

only being about 3 hours long, or so, there was a surprising amount of life to this book

Good and informative

Could have been more in depth. Given the diaries of Victoria it seemed a little high level but overall very good
