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?

Long Live the Queen!! The Real Queen of Hearts!

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Earlier biographies are more outdated, as they were published before a lot of the diaries and correspondences that Victoria wrote were made public.
