Vicky, Alice, Helena, Louise, and Beatrice would come to share many of the social restrictions and familial machinations borne by nineteenth-century women of far less-exulted class, before finally being passed over entirely with the accession of their brother Bertie to the throne. Principally researched at the houses and palaces of its five subjects in London, Scotland, Berlin, Darmstadt, and Ottawa.Hide synopsis

It really can't have been much fun being a nineteenth century Royal. But these people in cages can certainly be fun to read about. You can squirm at the stifling ceremonial, groan over the marriages labeled "Trouble" before they start, and wonder why such tragedies as WWI hang on the trivia of royal ...
Victoria's Daughters is a well-written, well-documented account of the upbringing, lives, and deaths of the daughters of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.
