> Queen Victoria
>
> Born in 1819, Victoria was an only child of Edward, the Duke of Kent. In 1837,
> she ascended to the throne and became Queen of Great
> Britain and Ireland. She was only 18 at this time, and the Prime Minister, Lord
> Melbourne, served as her educator in political
> decision-making. However, Victoria soon displayed her iron will, which allowed
> her to effectively rule by her own power. It was in June
> of 1840 that the Queen married Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha. They happily
> raised nine children, who were to become important
> figures in the major monarchial states of the 20th Century. Still, the Queen's
> loss of the Prince Consort in December of 1861 drove her
> into prolonged mourning and depression. Her policy-making seemed to change
> substantially from the time prior to Albert's death. Yet,
> she soon recovered, although never fully, and became one of Great Britain's most
> popular and prominent monarchs. She was named
> Empress of India in 1876, which was an event that showed the interest of the
> Queen and Great Britain in world colonization, throughout
> the 19th Century. Queen Victoria died of natural causes in January of 1901.--

Let not the fierce sun dry one tear of pain before thyself
