By Lloyd, Ian
One of Britain's most famous and longest serving rulers, Queen Victoria saw widespread change across the planet. During her sixty-three-year reign, in which she became one of the most powerful and influential people in the world, Victoria met everyone from Charlotte Bronte to Buf...falo Bill; she had opinions on all those who graced her parlour - and some who didn't. An Audience With Queen Victoria examines the meetings and letters exchanged between the queen and a veritable who's who of her time. It draws on often brutal character assessments in her journals and letters - Henry 'Dr Livingstone I presume' Stanley was 'a determined ugly little Man'. Exploring those she met officially and personally - even the seven men who tried to assassinate her - and her thoughts on figures of the time such as Jack the Ripper, Ian Lloyd unlocks a fascinating aspect of Victoria's character and outlook. Through brand-new archival research, newspapers and interviews with descendants, sit alongside Victoria and experience queenship as she did for the first time.Read more
