6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By RLW on 26 Sept. 2009
Format: Paperback
This easy-to-read book seems well researched and offers a clear picture of Victoria's childhood and growing-up to her succession and marriage to cousin Albert. In particular it describes the deteriorating relationship with her mother, due to the influence of John Conroy. One can't help admiring Victoria's refusal to be browbeaten by the pair. Victoria's realistic assessment of Albert as a suitor is also amusing. What spoilt this book for me was the appalling translation of "Riesenhalle" as "Hall of Giants" instead of Great Hall, and the numerous spelling mistakes which made me wonder if the spell-check programme when they were setting the text had been turned off. Also, the genealogy table of the Tudors at the end of the book seemed out of place - that explaining the succession of the House of Hanover and its connection with Saxe-Coburg-Gotha would have been much more appropriate.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Scott F. Hannigan on 9 Mar. 2011
Format: Paperback
I agree wholeheartedly with the previous reviewer - however in addition to the list of mistakes already mentioned I found one on Page 1 which put me in a sceptical frame of mind for the whole book. HRH Princess Charlotte is referred to on the opening page as Princess Charlotte of Wales and in the index as Charlotte, Princess of Wales. These are both wrong. She was never Princess of Wales. Anybody who knows anything about the royal family knows that the title 'Princess of Wales' is only ever taken by the wife of the Prince of Wales, and who then goes on to become Queen Consort when her husband succeeds to the throne.

Princess Charlotte was the only child of George IV, and was therefore heir presumptive, and would have become Queen Charlotte upon the death of her father in 1830, had she not died in childbirth in 1817.

Charlotte's mother, Caroline, had been Princess of Wales before her husband George IV ascended the throne in 1820 and the next Princess of Wales after her was Princess Alexandra of Denmark who married Albert Edward, Prince of Wales who ascended the throne as Edward VII on the death of Victoria in 1901.

Really enjoyed this book, purchased it for my Father as a gift and at his insistence, borrowed it to read.
Well written and really bought to life the trials of young Victoria as she struggled her way to independence.
