Who was Queen Victoria? Some of the most memorable images of Victoria show her as a little old lady, potato-like in appearance, dressed in everlasting black. We also know Victoria as a passionate, young princess who loved dancing. And there is a third Victoria – a woman who was also a remarkably successful queen, one who invented a new role for the monarchy. She found a way of being a respected sovereign in an age when people were deeply uncomfortable with having a woman on the throne.
