Early one morning, less than a month after her eighteenth birthday, Alexandrina Victoria is roused from bed with the news that her uncle William IV has died and she is now Queen of England. The men who run the country have doubts about whether this sheltered young woman, who stands less than five feet tall, can rule the greatest nation in the world. Despite her age, however, the young queen is no puppet. She has very definite ideas about the kind of queen she wants to be, and the first thing is to choose her name.

Drawing on Queen Victoria's diaries, which she first started reading when she was a student at Cambridge University, Goodwin - creator and writer of the PBS Masterpiece drama "Victoria" and author of the bestselling novels "The American Heiress" and "The Fortune Hunter" - brings the young nineteenth-century monarch, who would go on to reign for 63 years, richly to life in this magnificent novel.
