Born 24 May 1819: Queen Victoria

Alexandrina Victoria, who would go on to become Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, was born at Kensington Palace in London on May 24th, 1819. She ascended to the throne at the young age of 18 in 1837, and her reign of 63 years and 216 days became the longest of any British monarch until her great-great-granddaughter, Queen Elizabeth II, surpassed it in 2015. Her reign, which was a time that came to be known as the Victorian era, was a period of immense change for Britain. The country saw vast industrial growth, political reform, and a significant expansion of the British Empire. Queen Victoria died on January 22nd, 1901, at Osborne House on the Isle of Wight. The cause of death is attributed to a combination of factors, including rheumatism, heart disease, and possibly even blood poisoning.
