About the Book

“A fascinating presentation of the Queen and her time, keen characterizations of Lord Melbourne, Palmerston, Gladstone, and Disraeli, and an impressive and convincing portrait of the Prince Consort. Done with the frankness and subtlety of a great artist.”
— A.L.A. Catalog 1926
“In the long. amazing career which we follow we are ever conscious of the Queen as a woman, of the social and political atmosphere of the changes she lived through, and of her relation to those changes as head of the State. The career of the Queen falls into five periods — the Melbourne period, her married years, the years of seclusion and unpopularity which followed the death of the Prince Consort, her emergence under the influence of Disraeli, and finally her apotheosis in old age as the mother of her people and the symbol of their imperial greatness.”
“Mr Strachey has the advantage of dealing with real people, instead of with characters laboriously abstracted from life in general, and his book is more fascinating an compelling than most novels.”
– The Book Review Digest
