701 pages; 88 b&w illustrations, mostly photos. Born to Queen Victoria in 1840 she lived the remaining half of the 19th-century married into the German royal family. She battled antidemocratic and antifeminist forces; her life was the nexus of persons - Bismark and Kaiser Wilhelm II, her son - who shaped events that would lead to 20th-century tragedy. Remainder marked on bottom edge, otherwise clean throughout..
