Written entirely in the first person, this is a concise introduction to the extraordinary lives, scandals, loves, triumphs and tragedies of the extended royal family that has stretched across Europe, some of them becoming Kings and Queens.
In Children of The Empire, Michael Farah imagines how forty-seven children and grandchildren of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert would have each summarised the story of their life, from their early childhood to the very end.
Complete with individual portraits and family trees, this is an easy and enjoyable gateway to the family of Queen Victoria, accessible to all.
