Prince Albert: The Man Who Saved the Monarchy [9781782398318]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

The success story of the British royal family can be laid at the door of Prince Albert, who, after his death in 1861, turned into a man who could do no wrong. His statues were to be seen all over the Empire. Albert Halls, Albert Squares, Albert Streets filled every English-speaking town, and many of the towns in India.

In this exhaustively researched and definitive biography, A. N. Wilson reveals Prince Albert to be a man of prodigious gifts. Not only was he politically astute, he had administrative gifts which could have made him a great general. He was scientifically informed. He understood, and was enthused by, modern technology. He was a knowledgeable art collector. He was a musician and composer. He was the father of a family.

Between them, Victoria and Albert rescued the British monarchy from grave crisis and established the kind of country Britain would become over the next century.

Prince Albert is a towering achievement by a writer at the height of his powers.


AUTHOR: A. N. Wilson grew up in Staffordshire and was educated at Rugby and New College, Oxford. A Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, he holds a prominent position in the world of literature and journalism. He is a prolific and award-winning biographer and celebrated novelist. He lives in North London.
