Since her marriage to George VI, the Queen Mother has been a public figure who has always evoked passionate reactions: whether it was the anonymous soldier who vowed to fight for that little lady, Adolf Hitler who described her as the most dangerous woman in Europe, or the Canadian journalist who coined the expression the Queen Mum. A Canadian perspective on a sovereign who created and cultivated a special relationship with Canada informs The Queen Mother and Her Century. The first of many tours of Canada, the Royal Tour of 1939, which gave Canadians our initial opportunity to experience the Queen Mother s personal magnetism first-hand, is described in detail, along with the many Canadian relationships the Queen Mother has formed since.
