Queen Victoria [1819-1901] inherited the throne of Great Britain and Ireland from her uncle, King William IV, upon his death in June of 1837 when she was 18 years old. She reigned for 64 years until her death in 1901, giving rise to what is commonly referred to as the Victorian era. During her reign, Victoria bore nine children with her husband, Prince Albert.

No. The Young Victoria is based on a screenplay written by English actor, writer, and film maker Julian Fellowes, Baron Fellowes of West Stafford. It encompasses the time period from one year prior to Victoria's accession to the throne, her marriage 3-1/2 years later to Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, and the birth of their first child.

Like many movies about historical figures, the known details are correct. However, dramatic renditions of a real person's life often take some liberties to make the drama work. Probably the two most glaring inaccuracies commonly cited by viewers are (1) the real Queen Victoria was a tiny woman measuring only 4ft 11in during the time frame of the movie, whereas the actress playing her, Emily Blunt, is 5ft 7-1/2in, and (2) while an attempt actually was made at Victoria's life, Albert was not wounded by the bullet.

Yes, Queen Victoria is Queen Elizabeth's great-great-great grandmother. The lineage goes like this: Victoria > Edward VII > George V > George VI > Elizabeth II.

Dash is a tri-color Cavalier King Charles spaniel, named after the English King Charles, who reigned in the mid-1600s. At one time, the breed was the favorite of royalty.

The following books about Queen Victoria have been recommended by viewers of this movie: (1) We Two: Victoria and Albert: Rulers, Partners, and Rivals (2009) by Gillian Gill, (2) Becoming Queen (2009) by Kate Williams, (3) Queen Victoria (2002) by Lytton Strachey, (4) Victoria: The Young Queen by Monica Charlot (1991), (5) Queen Victoria, A Personal History (2001) by Christopher Hibbert, and (6) Queen Victoria: From her Birth to the Death of the Prince Consort (1974) by Cecil Woodham-Smith.
