Books to Read if You’re Watching Victoria on PBS

January 27, 2017

Victoria, the highly anticipated new drama series about the epic life of England’s Queen Victoria recently premiered on MASTERPIECE on PBS in the United States. It’s filling the Sunday night time slot that the smash hit Downton Abbey occupied for six years and features the same lush set design, costumes, and period detail that made Downton Abbey a huge success worldwide.

According to PBS, the eight-part drama follows Victoria from the time she becomes Queen in 1837 at the age of 18 through her courtship and marriage to Prince Albert. Famous for her candor and spirit, she was the first woman who seemed to have it all: a passionate marriage, nine children, and the job of being Queen of the world’s most important nation. Victoria’s often tumultuous reign lasted for 63 years; she was England’s longest-serving monarch until she was overtaken by Elizabeth II in September 2015.

If you’re watching Victoria, we recommend reading the following titles about the Queen, her husband Albert, and her amazing life:

queen victoria and the discoveryQueen Victoria and the Discovery of the Riviera

by Michael Nelson

“…amusing anecdotes and rambling tangential stories about the Queen and her retinue afford a wide-ranging, slice-of-life perspective on Victoria and her milieu…At times breathlessly gossipy (on various royal sex scandals), at other times astutely analytical (of the Queen’s negotiations of foreign policy crises), this is an enjoyable portrait of one of the modern era’s most important monarchs. 16 pages of photos.” – Publishers Weekly (2001 HC review).
