    Victoria (1819-1901)

    Great Britain's longest reigning monarch, Queen Victoria gave her name to the era that saw her Kingdom reach the pinnacle of power and prosperity. Indeed, her popularity probably saved the British monarchy from abolition. Born Alexandrine Victoria of Hanover in 1819, she was only 18 when she acceded to the throne in 1837. Queen Victoria took Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha as her consort on 10 February 1840. This marriage, which ended with his death in 1861 at the age of 42, produced nine children through whose marriages many of Europe's royal houses are descended. Victoria was also given the title Empress of India in 1876.

    Provenance:
    Presented by Victoria, Queen of Great Britain and Empress of India, to Lady Mary Augusta Frederic Grimstone, wife of the 4th Earl of Radnor.
    Purchased from The Armoury of St. James, London

    It would indeed have been much simpler to work with a local auction house, and we had local options. But we never once regretted going with Heritage.
