Mini Biography of Queen Victoria

(b. 1819, r. 1837-d. 1901)

  • Birth name : Princess Alexandrina Victoria of Kent

  • Height : 5' (1.52 m)

  • Born in 1819, Victoria was an only child of Edward, the Duke of Kent.

  • In 1837, she ascended to the throne and became Queen of Great Britain and Ireland.

  • She was only 18 at this time, and the Prime Minister, Lord Melbourne, served as her educator in political decision-making.

  • Victoria soon displayed her iron will, which allowed her to effectively rule by her own power.

  • It was in June of 1840 that the Queen married Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha.

  • They happily raised nine children, who were to become important figures in the major monarchical states of the 20th Century.

Mini Biography of Queen Victoria

  • The Queen's loss of the Prince Consort in December of 1861 drove her into prolonged mourning and depression.

  • Her policy-making seemed to change substantially from the time prior to Albert's death.

  • This prolonged mourning kept her occupied for the rest of her life and played an important role in the evolution of what would become the Victorian mentality.

  • Eventually Victoria became one of Great Britain's most popular and prominent monarchs.

  • She was named Empress of India in 1876, which was an event that showed the interest of the Queen and Great Britain in world colonization, throughout the 19th Century.

  • Victoria's long reign witnessed an evolution in English politics and the expansion of the British Empire, as well as political and social reform on the continent. 

  • Queen Victoria died of natural causes in January of 1901.
