Book Description HTML

England and Great Britain have had a few reigning queens when the crown had no male heirs (Great Britain still has primogeniture -- inheritance by the oldest son takes precedence over any daughters). These women rulers include some of the best-known, longest-reigning and culturally most successful rulers in British history.Queen Victoria of Great Britain was the longest-ruling monarch of Great Britain. She ruled during a time of economic and imperial expansion, and gave her name to the Victorian Era. She married a cousin, Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, when they were both seventeen years old, and had seven children before his death in 1861 sent her into a long mourning period.
