History, Biography
Although deeply in love with her husband, Victoria’s marriage had been a source of constraint, with Prince Albert using her pregnancies as a way to gain power - after all it can't have been easy for a Victorian gentleman to default to his wife. After his death Victoria was bereft and deranged but, as her diaries show, became free to move in the world of politics and make the deep friendships that some would say began to threaten the crown.
