- the book that contemplates the possibility that Victoria was illegitimate. It's highly unlikely, but so is a spontaneous mutation to create the genetic defect for hemophilia.
Victoria & Albert

- explores Victoria's friendship with her servant, John Brown, after Albert's death.
Edward the King
Edward the Seventh

Thanks for the book and movie recommendations! I know very little about Victoria at this point besides the fact that she was the grandmother of a lot of royalty across Europe.
