    The queen who popularized the white wedding dress, and whose husband, Prince Albert popularized the Christmas tree.

    It was fascinating but it didn't cover any of the many assassination attempts against her, including when she was pregnant with her first child and Albert selflessly got shot shielding her body with his own. Makes me wonder what other information I would be missing out on.

    Fascinating!! I didn't know anything about Queen Victoria. I wish there had been more about her reign and her influence during that time. It seemed from the book that she became a shadow of a ruler during her later years after husband died. It leaves me puzzled as to why the whole time period is called the Victorian Era. Maybe many of those political-type details were left out in favor of other details about her whole life because this was a youth book. I'm intrigued about her life and would like to know more. Still, her life was fascinating, and I'd like to know more.

    All though this is geared towards older children I quite enjoyed reading this short book. I was surprised that there was actually something in here that I hadn’t known before reading this. The Who Was series is definitely something I would have read growing up. It’s perfect for children 9 - 12 who love to learn about history. But just because they are geared towards that age group don’t let it stop you from reading one for yourself. I’m an adult who enjoyed reading this short biography and I plan on looking into reading more of them.

    The Who Was…? biography series are perfect for elementary or intermediate age students interested learning about the featured person for an assignment or just for an exciting read. The afterward portion in this edition has a timeline on one side showing key events in Queen Victoria's life and the opposite page shows worldwide key events during the same time period. Making for an interesting comparison and will help readers get a better feel for what else was happening at those times.

    Hmm, this is my first time reading one of these in the series, and I expected more detail?!... A very quick read, but I realize that I’d rather read something that goes greater in-depth than these short overviews with amusingly odd facts sprinkled throughout* UPDATE: I realized that these are for kids. Haha *

    I enjoy this series very much and often use them to supplement our homeschool. This I read for my own amusement, and I'd recommend it for an elementary or middle school reader. The biography is interesting and brief.

    Though long ago I studied English History, I was once again reminded how little I remember (or even knew) when Masterpiece came out with "Victoria". I realized it was time to brush up on some basic history, particularly because this is my favorite time period of historical fiction that I love to read. Her reign of 63 years and seven months is known as the Victorian Era, a period of industrial, cultural, scientific, and political change that was marked by a great expansion of the British Empire. But Victoria was raised under close supervision and near isolation until she became Queen of the United Kingdom at the young age of 18. She married her first cousin, Albert, and had nine children who married into families across Europe. By the time she had earned the nickname “The Grandmother of Europe” and the title “Empress of India” it was indeed true that the sun never set on the British Empire. Book simple and straightforward - not alot of fluff.

    Great book in the series. Read this with my daughter for a school report. I think it was a good summary of her life and the highlights of her reign. The only improvement could be some of the formatting- the little "extras" are great but they are placed in some awkward places in the chapter. But this is a great read for middle readers or if you want a quick, easy read to get basic information on Victoria.

    For a book written for a younger audience, we foundWho Was Queen Victoria? to be annoyingly ambiguous. There were too many pronouns and "its" used when a defining noun, name or title could have added the necessary clarity. For a family who is not a native to the UK and unfamiliar with the intricacies of all things royal, many of the explanations were unclear, creating more questions than providing clear-cut answers.

    I started watching "Victoria" on PBS, and I'm just so interested in the history of the British monarchy. I had not done much reading on Queen Victoria, so I picked up this book at the library. I was able to learn a lot of quick information about her reign. What an interesting life she led! This book has definitely made me want to read further about her life.

    I was curious to know about the woman whose names is used to identify a nearly whole century; the Victorian era.

    Not as good as other bobble head books we've read. Did not garner many questions from the 7yo.

    Another great, easy-to-read biography of a British royal and relevant history of Great Britain. Perfect for ages 8-12ish, perfect for setting up travel - will re-read before trip to London.
