    Anyone who is good with management, sales and marketing knows your strength is in interpersonal relationships and emotional intelligence. The bedchamber stand off isn't just a "teenage tantrum" wouldn't you want to keep your ladies in waiting who you trust vs a demand by paliament? For her it was personal. For politics it's controlling her to their own advantage.

    I find this presenter difficult to listen to. He seems lack empathy and 😒respect for the people who he's talking about.

    Why did they put this woman face on the title page? She looks goofy or on drugs out of her mind.

    Not really keen to the fact that he assumes what Queen Victoria’s childhood was like. She herself said that her childhood was unhappy; who is he to say otherwise?

    Between Victoria lies and her sister Beatrice lies, clearly 65% is out right lies. 🤦🏽‍♀️🙄😳🙄🤦🏿‍♀️🤷🏽‍♀️ Call it what it is The Madness of the Windsor genetics. That kind of hatred comes from deep hurt, what could Conroy have done to make a teen girl hate him forever and not forgive her mother until after her mother dies but sexual trauma that she felt her mother didn't stop Conway from committing.
    What would it have been for the next Queen to be known as an impure woman...? That would explain her unexplained hatred of both Conroy and her mother. Doesn't mean her genetic Madness never, kicked in.

    "Eggo" maniac? You prenounced it "eggo", just because you have a clearly self taught stiff ridgid accent doesn't mean you can change the English language. It's "Ego not Eggo. 🙄 I could not watch anymore after that sentence.

    Victoria DID love her children an awful lot. She had a difficult time to coope with post-natal depression and despised pregnancy, true, and it's also true she didn't like babies. But it's not true that she was jealous of her children in the way that she hated them. Victoria wasn't a true mother-bird baby-cuddler but she always wanted what was best for her children. If you read her diaries, you'll see how she prays for them and notices their individual personalities.

    17:44...."She became "iller"?" Not "sicker"? I realize "iller" is a proper word but sounds strange to my American, barbaric ear.

    Strange that he doesn't seem willing to consider that her childhood was both "happy" and "unhappy" at the same time. Why the need to define it as one or the other? Calling someone's memory unreliable just because their childhood is complicated and they have mixed feelings about it is a bit rude, really.

    • Voracious Reader

      Pure Alchemy369 What I heard the narrator say is that Victoria’s childhood relationship with her mother WAS happy, but that her adolescence turned everything sour bc her mother allowed John Conroy to control their lives. It wasn’t necessarily intolerable until after her serious illness while she was being “shown” to the British public and Conroy physically tried to force her to sign a document essentially giving him the right to rule for her, through her mother. From that time onward, Victoria despised them both, and this colored her relationship to her mother from then on. It was when her mother was dying, or soon after her death, that Victoria found notes and mementoes from her mother that reminded her that she and her mother had a much better relationship than she’d given her mother credit for.
      I think ok what made Victoria’s childhood and adolescence incredibly difficult,is that she never saw other children, except the few boy cousins who were considered as possible husbands, she was always with adults who were quietly but very aggressively trying to get control over her, including Baroness Lehzen, her governess, companion, and protector against Conroy.

      All of the above mentioned will feature N an award-winning
      movie relating to the starvation of millions of Ireland's population.
      The barbaric & shameful + greed filth mentality of such a tribal
