Abstract:
With a combination of novelistic flair and historical accuracy, Kate Williams begins by relating the heartbreaking story of Princess Charlotte, the Queen who never was, and her impact on the young Victoria. Our perception of Victoria the Queen is coloured by portraits of her older widowed self - her dour expression embodying the repressive morality propagated in her time. But Becoming Queen reveals an energetic, vibrant woman, determined to battle for power. It also shows how Victoria's struggles did not end when finally the crown was placed on her head. Revealing how Charlotte's death shaped Victoria's reign, Becoming Queen is an absorbingly dramatic tale of secrets, sexual repression and endless conflict.
