Queen Victoria was the Queen of the Great Britain and the British Empire from 1837-1901 and was the longest serving British monarch until recently surpassed by Queen Elizabeth II. Her reign dominated Great Britain and she came to symbolize Britain’s industrial might & growth, empire and military power. She was such an important figure that her entire long rule is identified as the Victorian Age or Era.
