Victoria (Alexandrina Victoria; 24 May 1819 – 22 January 1901) was from 20 June   1837 the Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and   from 1 May 1876 the first Empress of India until her death. Her reign as   Queen lasted 63 years and seven months, longer than that of any other   British monarch to date. The period centred on her reign is known as the   Victorian era.


Though Victoria ascended the throne at a time when   the United Kingdom was already an established constitutional monarchy in   which the king or queen held few political powers, she still served as a   very important symbolic figure of her time. The Victorian era   represented the height of the Industrial Revolution, a period of   significant social, economic, and technological progress in the United   Kingdom. Victoria’s reign was marked by a great expansion of the British   Empire; during this period it reached its zenith, becoming the foremost   global power of the time.


Victoria, who was of almost entirely German descent,   was the granddaughter of George III and the niece of her predecessor   William IV. She arranged marriages for her nine children and forty-two   grandchildren across the continent, tying Europe together; this earned   her the nickname “the grandmother of Europe”. She was the last British   monarch of the House of Hanover; her son King Edward VII belonged to the   House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. Through her mother, she was also a   first cousin twice removed of Maria Theresa, Holy Roman Empress.
