Victoria first met Albert in 1836, she became Queen the next year and met Albert again in 1839. Victoria was smitten with Albert after the first meeting and it was assumed that they would marry even though they didn't enter into an engagement at the time as it was decided Victoria was still too young to marry.

Something I have been looking for is the First Biography written on Queen Victoria after her Death. Does anyone know who wrote the first Book about Victoria after she died?

The earliest one mentioned on her Wikipedia page is Queen Victoria by Lytton Strachey, published in 1921, although I'm sure there were ones that were published earlier.

Earlier biographies are more outdated, as they were published before a lot of the diaries and correspondences that Victoria wrote were made public.

In Kings & Queens of Great Britain, David Soud wrote:

Victoria would have had Albert crowned King if it had been permissible, and she took his advice on nearly every aspect of rule.

I think 'VRI: Queen Victoria. Her Life and Empire' authored by her son in law the Marquis of Lorne in 1901, was the first biography to be published after her death. It was published in 1901 by Harmsworth and Sons Ltd.

The Marquis of Lorne, John George Edward Henry Douglas Sutherland Campbell became the 9th Duke of Argyll.

But only just, when the book was published. I was looking through a site which specialises in old and rare books and, by chance, the above volume came up as for sale. I remembered the query on this thread some posts back about the first biography published after Victoria's death, and I think this is a good contender.

Lorne must have written it before his father's and his mother in law's deaths, as he is still referred to as Lorne under 'author'. It was probably published very early in 1901.

In 1871, Queen Victoria opened a memorial to her husband in the form of the Royal Albert Hall in Kensington.
The name The Royal Albert Hall sounds very distinguished!

In World Royal Families, it is written:

When King Ferdinand was offered the throne of Bulgaria in 1887, some of his relatives expressed their surprise. 'He is totally unfit . . . delicate, eccentric,' wrote his cousin Queen Victoria.
