NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERBONUS: This edition contains a reader's guide. It was the most influential marriage of the nineteenth century--and one of history' s most enduring love stories.

A love story. That is how many people view Victoria and Albert. But they were so much more. Victoria inherited the throne as a teenager and not many people believed that she would succeed. Albert had been raised with the sole purpose to marry Victoria and help rule. While it was not love at first sight, love happened the second time around.

Victoria and Albert had a very normal marriage, loving yet sometimes complicated, even though they lived a very public life.
