Queen Victoria's Journals


In 1832, the 13-year old Princess Victoria of Kent began the first volume of her journal, thus starting a habit that would continue for the rest of her life. Queen Victoria's Journals includes 141 volumes of her journals, numbering approximately 33,000 pages. The Queen Victoria's Journals website reproduces every page of the surviving volumes of Queen Victoria's journals (including draft volumes and copies made by Lord Esher and Princess Beatrice), as high-resolution colour images along with separate photographs of the many illustrations and inserts within the pages. The text of all versions of the journals will be available as accurate transcripts for easy reading and powerful searching.


Queen Victoria's Journals resides on the Chadwyck Healey Platform. For more information, see the Unique Features Page.
