Victoria: Portrait of a Queen

The book I’m reading and I’m going to review is called Victoria: Portrait of a Queen by Catherine Reef. This book is about Queen Victoria. It’s about her life with its ups and its downs a bit like a roller coaster. You’ll learn about her relationship with Prince Albert, her childhood and the years she was queen. She had very strong emotions and when she was angry she could really storm like a hurricane! She ruled for 64 years and had nine children.

I liked it a lot. I liked it so much I read it three times. My favorite of Queen Victoria’s children is probably Princess Louise. She was so stubborn she argued with Queen Victoria and said she wanted to choose her own husband. It took a lot to argue with the British monarch! Queen Victoria actually let her. I like reading about powerful women who show the world that we’re strong too.

I recommend this book for anyone who likes a stubborn, amazing, record-holding queen.
