It seems almost incredible now to read of the Divinity that did hedge a Prince Consort one hundred years ago, particularly when we compare Albert s life and role with that of Prince Philip Indeed, it is difficult to guess which of the two would be averse to the other s speeches It may also occur to the reader that, whereas Prince Philip has acted as a modernising anIt seems almost incredible now to read of the Divinity that did hedge a Prince Consort one hundred years ago, particularly when we compare Albert s life and role with that of Prince Philip Indeed, it is difficult to guess which of the two would be averse to the other s speeches It may also occur to the reader that, whereas Prince Philip has acted as a modernising and almost dashing influence on the Queen, Albert appears to have been a staid and restraining one on Victoria For it must be remembered that Queen Elizabeth had been Heiress Apparent for far longer than Victoria, who was, when she married, a gay young girl by the standards of her age Although it is fairly certain that Albert and Prince Philip would have disliked each other on sight, they have both been guided by the highest sense of duty It is this sense of duty, in spite of considerable hostility and dislike of the foreign ways , that make Albert s life of such interest If he had accomplished nothing else, his influence on the dealings with the Union States of America, just before his death, would ensure him an important place in British History In Albert, Prince Consort , Hector Bolitho explores the life and personality of Prince Albert, from his birth in Saxe Coburg Saalfeld, his marriage and restraining influence on Queen Victoria and his early death from typhoid Hector Bolitho is deservedly renowned for his Royal Biographies Flowing and lively biography Cobden Sanderson Henry Hector Bolitho 28 May 1897 12 September 1974 was a prolific author, novelist and biographer In total, he had 59 books published Endeavour Press is the UK s leading independent publisher of digital books.

I was attracted to this book because, although I have read many about Victoria and her obsessive love for him, I hadn't read one devoted entirely to him. This fascinating account of Albert gets bogged down occasionally in the minutiae of politics of the time, but it manages to shake it off for the most part. It is the story of the inner man that appeals to the reader. From a wretched childhood to his own problems with his children, Albert did not live a happy life.His growing importance to his a [...]
I liked how the author included many lines from Prince Albert and Queen Victoria's letters, making the text feel authentic when being read. However, I felt that this book focused solely on the issues that came up during Queen Victoria's reign, rather than about Prince Albert himself. It seemed more of a historical account of the events, rather than a biography of the Prince Consort. I would have liked to read more about Prince Albert as an individual, rather than of the historical events such as [...]
True loveWanted to know more about Prince Albert and his relationship with Victoria. story is told via letters and it is as if you were reading their letters. Great view of the history of the time.
Albert, Prince ConsortI was thrilled in reading this book, I love history. I feel that Albert should've been given a much better title.
d.n.f. couldn't get into it
A fascinating biographyA well researched, compelling read which takes you as an observer into the lives of Victoria and Albert and their households
I appreciated that there was a book focused on Albert, as there has been so much more attention focused on Victoria. However, even though the author acknowledged his bias in his intro and made an attempt to rectify it, it still made it hard to read, although it did present him in a more sympathetic light than many other sources. It also dragged after a certain point in the book and the writing did not hold my attention.
AlbertWhat a touching book on the life of Alfred, Prince Consort, husband to Queen Victoria. A thoroughly researched look at a man so often though of as 'just' the husband to the Queen. An excellent read.
