Product Overview

The first comprehensive look at the court of Britain' s longest-reigning monarch

Royalty and the Victorian era are perennially captivating subjects for readers. Twilight of Splendor features both, with unprecedented coverage of the people, pageantry, and power of Queen Victoria' s court. Beginning with the Queen' s 1897 Diamond Jubilee, the book moves back in time to describe her long reign. From the queen' s family relationships and daily life to her palaces and holiday retreats, it paints a revealing portrait of a unique ruler at the height of empire.
