Queen Victoria (R.1837-1901) Granddaughter of George III, she became the longest reigning monarch in British history. She restored dignity to the throne of England and ruled throughout a period of enormous development in Britain. She was a compelling and dynamic person. She married her cousin, Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha and they had nine children. When she died, her descendants held almost every throne in Europe and Russia.
Fascinating book, probably quite biased toward Victoria, but a really interesting bio.
Queen Victoria's Journals... including awesome drawings by the Queen (including treats like how she wore her wedding veil). Amazing resource about my favorite queen.

Empress Elisabeth of Austria on her coronation day as Queen of Hungary (1867). Her beauty was legendary and she was very fashion-conscious. She makes an excellent study in fashion history beginning with the Victorian/crinoline era all the way through the bustle era into the Belle Epoque.
