Richard R. Holmes
“Her Majesty most graciously consented to supply notes on her childhood and youth… I am, therefore, enabled to present, for the first time, an accurate account of the childhood and youth of Queen Victoria.”
To commemorate Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee in 1897, the Queen’s librarian compiled her biography.
Queen Victoria gives us a contemporary Victorian insight into the Queen, her peers, her background and her heirs.
As Librarian to the Queen, Holmes gained access to what was then new and private material, including notes written by the Queen herself for Homes to use.
Written in her 60th year on the throne, Queen Victoria provides a detailed account of her reign in those 60 years and before from an intimate perspective, and a personal source.
