John van der Kiste's biography, Princess Victoria Melita, tells the story of the bride at the wedding. He starts with the story of her parents, the second son of the Queen, Prince Alfred, Duke of Edinburgh, and her mother, the only daughter of Tsar Alexander II, Marie Alexandrovna. The marriage was certainly an odd one, and Marie did not settle in well with her English in laws. I had been hard-pressed to find any books exclusively about this second daughter of Victoria and Albert's second son (Alfred) and his illustrious wife, the former Grand Duchess Marie of Russia. If you are not hooked on history, you will be after you are finished with this very informative, well-written book.

Here, author John Van der Kiste brings you the facts about each of the monarch's sons and daughters – from the "mischievous" Princess Victoria to the troublesome heir to the throne, Prince Albert (later Edward VII).
She hated and dreaded the thought of childbearing, and yet within a few weeks of her wedding she was pregnant. On 21 November that year, a child – the first of nine – was born. When the doctor informed Victoria that she had a princess, she answered firmly that the next will be a prince.
