Who were the Victorians? When did they live?

The Victorian Era is the name given to the
period in history when Queen Victoria was
on the throne.

She was Queen from 1837 to 1901.

That’s more than 63 years, which is longer
than any other British monarch so far.

Victoria had 9 children, of which 4 would
later become monarchs: Edward VII,
George V, Edward VIII and George VI.

As well as English, Queen Victoria could speak German, French, Italian
and Latin.
