The Life and Times of Victoria by Dorothy Marshall

Ever since I wrote my 8th grade research paper on Queen Victoria, I've been a bit obsessed with her life and that time period.

Example One:

Me with Queen V in Windsor, July 2008

Example Two:

Victoria Regina and I- Back of Buckingham Palace, July 2008

I've read several biographies on Queen Victoria, and I really enjoyed Marshall's book. It was descriptive and factual, without being flowery and boring. If you would like to know more about Queen Victoria's reign, Marshall's book is an excellent place to begin.

I also enjoyed these biographies on Queen Victoria:
Queen Victoria by Walter L. Arnstein
Persons of consequence: Queen Victoria and her circle by Louise Auchincloss
Queen Victoria's Daughters by Jerrold M. Packard
Her Little Majesty: The Life of Queen Victoria by Carolly Erickson

This DVD was also good: Victoria and Albert

Happy reading.
