      Victoria, Queen of England, Empress of India; aka Alexandrina Victoria Reign: 20 Jun 1837-22 Jan 1901; Crowned: Westminster Abbey 28 Jun 1838; She became queen at age 18. Her 63 year reign was the longest in the history of England. Her descendants, including 40 grandchildren, married into almost every royal family of Europe. With her personal example of honesty, patriotism and devotion to family life, Victoria became a living symbol of the solidity of the British Empire. The many years of her reign, often referred to as the Victorian age, witnessed the rise of middle class and were marked by a deeply conservative morality and intense nationalism. She was obsessed with the collecting of memorabilia of her family. She mourned her late husband, Albert, for more than 40 years.

      Text: Queen Victoria ruled from 1837 to 1901, the longest reigning monarch in British history. Victoria was the daughter of Edward the duke of Kent and Princess Victoria of Saxe-Coburg. She was born in Kensington Palace in London on 24-May-1819.

      In 1837 Queen Victoria took the throne after the death of her uncle William IV. Due to her secluded childhood, she displayed a personality marked by strong prejudices and a willful stubbornness.

      On 10-Feb-1840, only three years after taking the throne, Victoria took her first vow and married her cousin Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha. Their relationship was one of great love and admiration. Together they bore nine children - four sons and five daughters: Victoria, Bertie, Alice, Alfred, Helena, Louise, Arthur, Leopold, and Beatrice.

      Albert assisted in her royal duties. He introduced a strict decorum in court and made a point of straitlaced behavior. Albert also gave a more conservative tinge to Victoria's politics. If Victoria was to insistently interject her opinions and make her views felt in the cabinet, it was only because of Albert's teachings of hard work.

      Reflecting back into her childhood, Victoria was always prone to self pity. On 14-Dec-1861 Albert died from typhoid fever at Windsor Castle. Victoria remained in self-imposed seclusion for ten years. This genuine, but obsessive mourning kept her occupied for the rest of her life and played an important role in the evolution of what would become the Victorian mentality.

      After Albert's death, Queen Victoria's popularity declined as a result of her mourning and few public appearances. Her popularity was at its lowest by 1870, but it steadily increased thereafter until her death. In 1876 she was crowned empress of India by Disraeli. In 1887 Victoria's golden jubilee was a grand national celebration. In the month of June, Victoria's sixtieth year on the throne had come. Her diamond jubilee in 1897 was as extravagant as her golden jubilee in 1887.

      Queen Victoria died on 22-Jan-1901. She died after a brief illness and a rather long failure of her powers. Her eldest son Edward VII became king. The majority of her subjects had not known a time when Queen Victoria had not been reigning over them. The idea of losing her became a scarcely possible thought.

      Queen Victoria, Widow of Windsor, mother of the Empire, reigned for sixty-four years.

      Text: Last Words of Queen Victoria:

      "The Emperor is very kind..."

      Queen Victoria.

      There are several "last words" attributed to Queen Victoria, including
      "that peace may at last come... Bertie!" However, Victoria had
      been semi-comatose for 2 days before her death, drifting in and out
      of consciousness. She asked for her little Pomeranian ("Turi") a
      few times, and spoke briefly with her doctors at times (such as
      asking how she was doing.) Some "last statements" attributed to
      Victoria but reported by family members can be viewed with some
      suspicion, because people were eager for the "right" kind of words
      be the last to such a personality.

      Verifiable is Victoria's statement to her doctor after a brief,
      private visit to the dying Queen from her impetuous grandson, the
      Kaiser. After the Kaiser (who for once did not abuse his presence)
      left his "darling Grandmama's" bedside, her doctor came in. Victoria
      said nothing of what had passed between her and the Kaiser, only
      the above.

      Text: Link to Osborne House pictures

      http://www.invectis.co.uk/iow/osborne.htm

      Osborne House was the favourite residence of Queen Victoria, and was where she died. It was designed by the Prince Consort in the style of an Italian Villa. It is in keeping with the beautiful gardens which slope northwards to the Solent. The house was presented to the nation in 1902 by King Edward VII. It is now used partly as a convalescent home for naval & military officers. The state apartments and the Swiss Cottage were where the royal children were taught small-scale housekeeping. These are open to the public. The Railway had a station at Whippingham once dedicated to royal visits but later open to the public. The Havenstreet Railway currently stops at Wootton, one station short of Whippingham.
