Queen Victoria’s Journals now online

A partnership between the Royal Archives and the Bodleian Library has brought us the 141 volumes of Queen Victoria’s private diaries. I believe that some of her diaries were destroyed by one of her daughter upon the Monarch’s death, but many have survived and are now available online at www.queenvictoriasjournals.org

There are 13volumes in Victoria’s own hand survive, and the majority of the remaining volumes were transcribed after Queen Victoria’s death by her youngest daughter, Princess Beatrice, on her mother’s instructions

The journals are searchable by word.
