This month’s best historical reads

Queen Victoria: Daughter, Wife, Mother, Widow

Hodder & Stoughton, £25, hardback, 432 pages

GETTY X3

The endlessly enthusiastic historian and broadcaster Lucy Worsley turns her attention to Queen Victoria in her new book. Countless words have already been expended on the monarch, so Worsley takes a new approach to cracking the tough, seemingly dour façade: telling Victoria’s story through 24 key moments spread across her reign. They reveal both the changes she experienced through her life and the forces that emerged again and again: gender roles, royal tradition and social pressure. It’s a warm, humane look at a woman whose successes often masked her own deep unhappiness.

“Worsley tells Victoria’s story through 24 key moments spread across her reign”

About History Revealed

Long before the seven wonders of the ancient world were even dreamt of, work had begun on Salisbury Plain to construct a monument out of stones. Why was Stonehenge built, who built it, and for what purpose? We explore the very latest theories behind England's oldest mystery. Plus: The brief reign of Tudor king Edward VI, the sacrifices of domestic servants, the D-Day trial that was a complete disaster, a full gallery of newly colourised pictures of the past, and more.
