Description
During Queen Victoria’s 64-year reign, no fewer than eight attempts were made on her life; the would-be assassins included a bartender dreaming of becoming an admiral, a hunchback longing for notoriety, an Irishman haunted by the Potato Famine, and the proto-terrorists known as the Dynamitards. In this history—which features 16 pages of illustrations—Paul Thomas Murphy shows how these violent activities shored up lasting public support for the queen, at a time when other European thrones were toppling.

"This is a gripping book—Mr. Murphy's broad and confident knowledge of the 19th century is balanced by his gift for intimate and emotional storytelling."—Lisa Hilton
