Victoria's Daughters

Գրքի շապիկի երեսը
Charting the lives of Queen Victoria's five daughters, this book closely examines a generation of royal women who were dominated by their mother and married off as much for political considerations as for love. Vicky, Alice, Helena, Louise, and Beatrice would come to share many of the social restrictions and familial machinations borne by nineteenth-century women of far less-exulted class, before finally being passed over entirely with the accession of their brother Bertie to the throne.
