Alexandrina Victoria may have been an exemplary constitutional monarch in politics and international affairs, but she was equally interested and active in her domestic life, both as a wife and mother and as a ruler over her household. This combination of decorum and dignity with a genuine love of home and family life provides the ultimate key to her character. Michael de-la-Noy, biographer of the Queen Mother and of George IV, has fashioned a revealing and thorough portrait of this other side to her reign, from her youth spent in preparation for succession to her final years as matriarch of a family that extended into all the royal houses of Europe. De-la-Noy's impressionistic, intimate biography focuses on her personal life, her relations with her family and household, and her various residences. Queen Victoria at Home goes behind her civic role of a conscientious and hardworking sovereign to reveal a most devoted wife and the mother of nine children, who treasured domestic privacy over public adulation.
