The original title of the book: Heart of a Queen: Queen Victoria's Romantic Attachments

To Queen Victoria, the love, no less than the guidance, attention and protection of a man, was all but indispensable. In the course of her long life, there were six men with whom her emotions were romantically involved. These were her first prime minister, the urbane Lord Melbourne; her husband; the idealistic Prince Albert; her fellow sovereign, the fascinating Napoleon III; her gillie, the rough-hewn John Brown; another prime minister, the silver-tongued Disraeli; and her Indian servant, the exotic Munshi. It is with these six romantic associations that this text is concerned. The appeal to Queen Victoria of these six apparently disparate characters was that they were men of distinctive personality. There was something exceptional, something "outre" about each of them and they all - and this was probably their greatest attraction in the eyes of Queen victoria - treated her as a woman first, a Queen second. By focusing on the Queen's romantic associations and by making full use of recently revealed materials, the author has attempted to produce a fresh intriguing and startlingly different portrait of Queen Victoria.

Theo Aronson is the author of over twenty works of royal historical biography, published in eleven languages. Among the widely read are Grandmama of Europe, The King in Love, Napoleon and Josephine and a biography of Princess Margaret. In the course of researching and writing these books he has interviewed major and minor members of Britain’s royal family and members of the royal households, as well as various officials, servants, friends and others whose lives are in some way connected with the monarchy. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
