Last Days of Glory Summary

Last Days of Glory: The Death of Queen Victoria by Tony Rennell

Queen Victoria's death, in January 1901, was an immense shock that unsettled Britain and the Empire to a degree that now seems inconceivable. She had been Queen for 63 years; people wept in the streets, and a million onlookers lined the route of her funeral procession in London. What would the country do without her? "Last Days of Glory" traces the dying days of Queen Victoria -from Christmas 1900 through to her funeral six weeks later -brilliantly capturing the intense drama in the royal household, where a beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother lay mortally ill, and the extraordinary fear and anguish beyond, in the whole nation and throughout the world.
