᠑ Chapter בֿ Victoria's Daughters for early readers ᠨ By Jerrold M Packard ᢘ Incisive character studies of Queen Victoria s five daughters provide the framework for a lively survey of 19th century European history With three brothers securing the English throne, the princesses royal duty was to further Britain s interests through marriage Vivacious, intelligent Vicky 1840 1901 , the spoiled eldest, had a happy union with Hohenzollern prince Frederick William, though her liberal views were unpopular in Prussia and vehemently resisted by her son Willy, who eventually became the emperor of Germany Sensitive, altruistic Alice 1843 78 dutiful, dull Lenchen 1846 1923 and shy baby sister Beatrice 1857 1944 all married minor German royalty though Beatrice, intended to be her domineering mother s spinster companion, didn t marry until she was 28 and continued to live in England at Victoria s beck and call Centuries old custom dictated that princesses must not wed subjects, but artistic, rebellious Louise 1848 1939 married a Scottish nobleman anyway and managed to lead a slightly less restricted life than her sisters, particularly as a strong supporter of charitable organizations for women Jerrold Packard, a veteran historian biographer with six previous books to his credit, spins an enjoyably old fashioned narrative emphasizing personal relationships among Europe s royalty and their impact on political developments Wendy SmithQueen Victoria and Prince Albert had nine children five of them daughters and 40 grandchildren In this engaging group biography, Packard Farewell in Splendor writes about scores of lives and several generations of this fecund couple s progeny which is why the book is best devoured in small bites and why the comprehensive list of Principal Characters is indispensable As a family, the VAs make for a story as dramatic as any fictional saga, but Packard also shows real sympathy and affection for these royal individuals, including the vastly complicated Queen Victoria herself Packard combed the daily correspondence the sovereign required of her eldest daughter, Vicky, as well as letters, journals, memoirs and biographies of the other principals involved In addition, his loving or disparaging descriptions of the five daughters residences in London, Argyll, Berlin, Darmstadt and Ottowa reflect his eager research History was no mere backdrop to these lives Vicky s eldest child, Willy, grew up to become Kaiser Wilhelm II, to her great despair, and Alice s daughter Alexandra married Tsar Nicholas II Packard s narrative is accessible, unpretentious and solidly written except for one particularly bad pun on a widow s peak He manages to treat historical events succinctly while emphasizing the princesses individual lives and family relationships, their talents in music and art, their patronage of schools and hospitals and their pioneering advocacy of women s education and employment Copyright 1998 Reed Business Information, Inc.
