Kept isolated from the court by her domineering mother, Victoria seems unprepared for the throne when King William IV dies. But the teenage queen shows surprising strength and resolve, defying her mother's schemes to seize power, and puts her full faith in the political counsel of Lord Melbourne, the Prime Minister--an alliance that would prove troublesome in the future. Baron Stockmar enlists the help of Belgium's King Leopold to arrange a meeting between Victoria and her cousin, Prince Albert of Germany. Victoria reluctantly agrees--remembering the Prince as a somewhat tiresome youth--but her reservations are quickly dispelled upon seeing the Prince again, and she falls utterly in love. She proposes to him after a brief courtship, and they are married.
