Editorial Reviews

Queen Victoria's Children (DVD)

This three-part series explores the reign of Queen Victoria through her husband Albert, the Prince Consort, and the lives of her children. By telling the stories of the personal relationships between Victoria, her husband and their nine children, it looks for a fresh understanding of our longest reigning Queen and the nature of the British monarchy.

I always wondered about the children of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. The nine children, born over a period of seventeen
years,could be best described as victims. The more well known were Bertie the heir to the throne who became King Edward VII
after the death of Queen Victoria and the oldest daughter Victoria who was the unfortunate mother of Kaiser Willhem who
was responsible for WWI. This documentary by historians of Queen Victoria and her children, five daughter and four sons,
presents a horror story of physical and emotional abuse that is shocking. It is sad that Prince Albert died for many reasons but
especially that he was not there to protect their children from the Queen. The five daughters are praiseworthy for the fact
that they overcame the abuse that Victoria heaped on them and became independent personalties. This account of the
relations between Victoria and her nine children should be called Women who should never be mothers.

I really enjoyed watching this DVD of Queen Victoria's 9 - COUNT EM' 9 Children! It was interesting to find out the dirt behind the crown. Who knew that Victoria had a voracious appetite - not just blood or figgy pudding guys ;) or that she was a near tyrant in controlling her children's lives. If any of you are interested in history and all sorts of tidbits - I'd recommend you pick this up. Its about 180 mins and broken down into 3 sections; but worth every minute and penny. I love history so if you do too - this one is for you. :)

Many different points of view from noted historians. Brought the children into focus, and their relationship with the "Queen". A must to understanding the period.

A good history of the nine children and where they married and how this influenced European history. Well done and acted.

A wonderful, and superbly produced, history and destinies of Queen Victoria's nine children. The information is very rarely, if ever, made easily available. Each one of the children had surprisingly noteworthy lives. This a superb, and quite entertaining, Dvd.

This was terrific. As an American, I'm sad to say I don't know that much about English history but I do love learning about history. This was so well done, so thoroughly researched and beautifully filmed.

I was very impressed with this documentary. It presented quite a bit of material which was new to me. I don't think I appreciated the degree to which Queen Victoria was a 'Mommy Dearest'. This documentary works very effectively in conjunction with 'Royal Cousins at War', this offering covering Queen Victoria's children, the other her grandchildren. With the centennial of World War One upon us, these two films offer valuable insight into the personalities and politics which determined the age. Note: They ARE documentaries, not films designed purely for entertainment, though that does by no means diminish their value.
