I was very interested to read this account of the life of Queen Victoria's youngest son, about whom I knew almost nothing. This book manages to be informative without being in the least bit dry or difficult to read. Such a sad story.

In the many books about Queen Victoria's family that I have read, Leopold seems to be known only for his haemophilia. He seems to have been the most popular member within the royal family, although not with his mother, who seemed to see him as a convenient drone. She was notorious for trying to keep her children on a leash long into adulthood. Leopold appears to have overcome these obstacles. In his short life, he accomplished a great deal, he was the first of the royal family to attend Oxford, he was on the boards of a great many charities, he managed to travel, and he worked as an unofficial secretary to his mother.
This is a well written and researched book. The author provides information on other more obscure members of Queen Victoria's family, such as her half sister Feodora and her family. The family tree of the female side of Victoria's family is the most extensive and interesting I have seen, although it does not solve the question of where the haemophilia in the family came from.

This biography has a wealth of detail and is extremely well written, I recommend it highly. For anyone with an interest in Queen Victoria; hemophaelia in the British Royal family and just Royal history in general, this is a great read. Lots of new information (to me) & very well presented. Leopold had a frustrating life due to his illness and his position, but he overcame a great many difficulties and ultimately had a happy marriage. The book explores Leopold's close relationship with his sister Alice and her family, which has not been covered before. His difficult relationship with Queen Victoria is covered fairly, with sympathy for both parties. Zeepvat is the rare biographer who can really bring the material alive.

I'd rate this less than zero, if the rating system allowed me to. This is completely lousy book and a huge waste of money! Many facts are wrong, which is a disgrace for someone of Ms. Zeepvat's experience. Her writing is flat and uninspiring and almost anything of interest is obtained from other books about the subject. Personally I'm sick of all these royal books that are basically re-packaged versions of previous books.

Authors usually writes about famous people, kings and queens, politicians, artists, scientists, etc. This biography is different because is about the obscure and sad life of a young prince and his struggle with haemophilia. Prince Leopold lived always under the shadow of his powerful mother, Queen Victoria, who overprotected him because of his illness. As you read the book you get to know and love this shy and intelligent young prince. The book is interesting because the author gives us a theory about why the haemophilia gene appeared on Queen Victoria's genetic code. She analyses th Queen's genealogical tree on the female line and discovers that many of her female ancestors'sons died in infancy so they may had been haemophiliacs. This is a more interesting theory than that of thinking than Queen Victoria was an illegitimate child, not being the Duke of Kent's daughter but being the daughter of her mother's lover, who could have been an haemophiliac.
