Almost 200 years ago; the cries of a newborn baby echoed through the halls of London's Kensington Palace. No one who celebrated Princess Victoria's birth in the late spring of 1819 could have imagined that the little girl born fifth in line to the English throne would be the ruling monarch of the United Kingdom in just a few short years The 19th century was a time of great change. For Princess Alexandrina Victoria; misfortune would strike early with the loss of her father; a lonely childhood; and a mother determined to control her. As teen queen; Queen Victoria ruled with stubbornness; strength; and humility that nourished the advancement of the Industrial Revolution; soothed the tempers of European warmongers; and changed life in England in diverse and sometimes controversial ways. Through her published journals and letters; this beloved figure has come to be known as more than just an aristocratic young woman with a crown; but a queen for the ages. Victoria ruled on her own terms for an astounding 63 years. She survived illness; political plots; the birth of nine children; assassination attempts; and a personal heartbreak that would transform her from a royal ruling mother into a mourning widow. Through it all; she maintained an iron determination to finish her course. Under her reign; the United Kingdom reached its historic peak of world power and dominion; influencing change and life around the globe. A small woman with glowing; round eyes and a ready wit; Queen Victoria is remembered today as the charming giantess who ruled while the sun never set on the British Empire.
