22nd January 1901

Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland from 20th June 1837 until her death in 1901.

She inherited the throne at the age of 18 and became a national icon. Her reign of 63 years and seven months, was longer than that of any other British monarch before her, until overtaken by her great-great granddaughter Elizabeth II in 2015. Her reign is known as the Victorian era.

It was a period of industrial, cultural, political, scientific, and military change within the United Kingdom and was marked by a great expansion of the British Empire.
