Lytton Strachey developed a new form of biography which provided insights and sympathy for his subjects. Queen Victoria (1921) and Eminent Victorians (1918) explified this new approach to give readers a more intimate perspective. Queen Victoria was born in 1819, crowned at the age of 18, died in 1901, and one of the longest living monarchs. This book is quite an intimate look at the Queen.
