Victoria: The Girl Who Would Become Queen, Lindsay R. Richwine May 2019

Victoria: The Girl Who Would Become Queen, Lindsay R. Richwine

The Gettysburg Historical Journal

This research reviews the early life of Queen Victoria and through analysis of her sequestered childhood and lack of parental figures explains her reliance later in life on mentors and advisors. Additionally, the research reviews previous biographical portrayals of the Queen and refutes the claim that she was merely a receptacle for the ideas of the men around her while still acknowledging and explaining her dependence on these advisors.
