Summary When Queen Victoria's husband, Prince Albert, died in December 1861 the nation was paralysed with grief. He was only forty-two and official bulletins had, until the day before he died, given no cause for alarm. This book examines the circumstances leading up to it, the ritual of his funeral and obsequies, and offers theories on what killed him.
