When her beloved husband died at a tragically young age, Queen Victoria found herself bereft, running an Empire alone and the single mother to nine small children.

Queen Victoria’s coping mechanism was quite extreme. She hid herself away from public life and began to focus on her children, micromanaging everything from what they wore to who they married. But her meddling would lead to resentment and tragedy.
