Queen Victoria is the second longest reining monarch recently surpassed by Queen Elizabeth II. She ascended to the thrown in 1837 and the first sovereign under her reign was minted in 1838. She ruled until her death in 1901. Her son Edward, became King Edward VII. There are three main Queen Victoria portraits - young head, jubilee and old/veil head. There are many varieties including, but not limited to, the position, size, existence, orientation and spread of initials, length of horse's tail, the rotation of the portrait, and die number.

Queen Victoria's reign saw great cultural expansion; advances in industry, science and communications; and the building of railways and the London Underground.

In 1840, Queen Victoria married her cousin, Prince Albert, the son of her mom’s brother. Since Victoria was queen, Albert couldn’t propose to her. So she proposed to him.

At first, the British public didn’t warm up to the German prince and he was excluded from holding any official political position. At times their marriage was tempestuous, a clash of wills between two extremely strong personalities. However, the couple were intensely devoted to each other. Prince Albert became Queen Victoria’s strongest ally, helping her navigate difficult political waters.
