The Young Victoria- Review

Before the illustrious Victorian Era of the early 19th century began, a young and melancholic princess waited with measured eagerness for her eighteenth birthday. As the only legitimate and surviving descendant of the monarchy, her adulthood would signify that she could now avoid the need for a proxy Regent if she were to succeed to the throne. She would finally be independent from the clutches of an over protected childhood, dashing the ambitions of her mother’s manipulative lover and estate comptroller, Sir Conroy.
Soon after her birthday, her uncle, King William IV passes away. Early that morning, young Victoria was woken up to be crowned Queen regnant of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. This is the story of her early days on the throne.
