Queen Victoria - Gallery

Thumbnail image of Queen Victoria in the Coronation robes, 1838 (1906). Artist: Charles Robert Leslie.

With the success of ITV’s ‘Victoria’, starring Jenna Coleman, the world’s enduring interest in this great British monarch has again been confirmed.

Her reign of 63 years and 7 months was the longest of any monarch until recently, when her great-great-granddaughter Elizabeth II surpassed her on 9 September 2015.

During her 63 years as queen, Victoria saw Great Britain become the most powerful trading nation in the world, provoking a social and economic revolution whose effects are still being felt today.
