Victoria was the longest reigning British monarch at

nearly 64 years, until topped by Elizabeth II in 2015.

Victoria married Albert in 1840. The pair had 9 children,

who went on to marry in to royalty across Europe.

Victoria entered a protracted period of mourning

following Albert's death in 1861, lasting many years.

The Victorian era was one of dramatic change and

development in industry, science, culture, and politics.
