The Princess Victoria became Queen on June 20, 1837, just five weeks after keeping her eighteenth birthday. She died on January 22, 1901, having reigned for sixty-three years over a kingdom which, during this period, had grown into the strongest empire the world had yet seen.
The story of its growth is the subject of this book. It is a story which has no equal in the world's history.
It will be interesting to learn something of the young girl-queen so suddenly called to a position of such immense importance.
Victoria was the niece of William the Fourth,-and daughter of his younger brother, the Duke of Kent. Heir after heir to the British throne had died, and by the time that the little Princess Victoria was twelve years old, it became evident that she would succeed her uncle.
