  3. Queen Victoria's history fascinates me, there's so much drama to her reign. I'm a bit of a Henry VIII nut as well.

  4. These portraits are new to me, thanks for posting them. Makes me want to watch the movie, "The Young Victoria."

  5. I actually saw some of Victoria Regina's hair, plaited into a bracelet, not long ago.
