Summary
Queen Victoria was our longest-reigning monarch, a symbol of Britain's great age of power and imperialism. But her life could so easily have been cut short. Just three years after she ascended to the throne, a humble 'pot-boy' left the house with two guns bulging from his trouser pockets and a feeling of purpose and determination. fired a brace of pistols at her from just six paces away. She escaped unharmed, but amazingly there were seven further attacks or attempts on her life over the next 47 years. Each chapter of this book captures the drama of each attack and uncovers the would-be assassin's motives, describing their lives up to that point, their trial and sentence, and what became of them afterwards
