Queen Victoria may not have been who you think she was! This compelling book shows how two eccentric literary men, hired in 1901 to compose a portrait of the queen through her own letters, warped the records (with motives both political and personal). Yvonne Ward's historical detective work - strengthened by unprecedented access to royal archives - bolsters this remarkable story about the complex creation of a sovereign icon. (CH)
