Queen Victoria was one of the most prolific monarchs of the country. She became the longest reigning monarch in England, British and Scottish monarchy, a record that stands till date. It was during her succession to throne that the United Kingdom experienced a massive expansion in almost every sphere - be it technological, communication or industrial. The underground railways that have become an integral part of British transportation system have its foundation dating back to the Victorian era. Similarly, loads of bridges, roads and rail lines that are present today first came into form under her rule. Industrial and technological feats apart, she worked to transform the face of United Kingdom by eradicating poverty and diminishing class difference. The literacy rate also experienced a massive rise during her reign. --------------------- Childhood & Early Life A succession crisis after the death of Princess Charlotte of Wales, the only legitimate heir of King George III of United Kingdom, caused a state of panic among the sons of the king. The Duke of Kent married Princess Victoria of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld, who bore him their rightful heir, Victoria in 1819 at Kensington Palace in London. She was christened by the Archbishop of Canterbury in the Cupola Room at Kensington Palace. Baptised Alexandrina Victoria, she was fifth in line of succession, after her father and uncles. Upon the death of her grandfather and father in 1820, she was next probable heiress to Duke of Clarence, popularly called William IV. Since she was a minor, King William assumed the responsibility until she turned 18. As a child, she was raised protectively under elaborate rules and protocols. Her mother forbade her to meet new people. Due to this, she remained sad and melancholic. She was home-schooled by private tutors, who taught her various subjects and languages including, French, Italian, German and Latin. In her idle hours, she played with her dolls and the spaniel, Dash. Starting 1830, she was forcefully taken on tours across the length and breadth of the country, stopping at towns and country homes, by her mother and comptroller, Sir John Conroy. These trips were greatly despised by her. ---------------------- Reign Upon the death of her uncle, King William IV, she became the rightful and legal heir to the throne. She was chosen the Queen of the United Kingdom. Her first name was dropped and she thence became known as Queen Victoria in 1837. As per the Salic law which was under existence, she was banned from Hanoverian succession, who shared a monarch with Britain. As such, she inherited everything but Hanover which was passed to the Duke of Cumberland, who was next in line to the throne until she married and had a family of her own. The formal coronation was held on June 28, 1838 after which she became the first sovereign to take up residence at Buckingham Palace. Since she was novice and too young to take important decisions, she relied on Whig Prime Minister Lord Melbourne for everything. The two shared a father-daughter relationship. At the beginning of her reign, she was popular but her allegations and derogatory remarks against Lady Flora (one of her mother's ladies-in-waiting) and Sir John Conroy in 1839 caused her reputation to suffer. The abomination led to resignation of Lord Melbourne from premiership. However, in the following weeks, he regained his position. Following her marriage to Albert in 1840, Lord Melbourne took a backseat as Albert soon filled up for his shoes and became her chief political advisor. His influence dominated her being, as he resolved to solve all her issues be it political or personal.
