Queen Victoria

Born at Kensington Palace on 24th May 1819, Victoria (Alexandrina Victoria) was the only daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Kent. When she was born she was fifth in line to the throne, after her Father and his three brothers. Her father died shortly after her birth. Her Uncle, George IV reigned for ten years  but died in 1830 with no surviving children, his brother Frederick had died three years earlier and so her uncle, William IV, became King. He was old and unwell and, having no legitimate children, Victoria became heir to the throne.

Victoria was raised in a strict, secluded environment. King William disliked her mother, the Duchess of Kent, and was determined that she should not become Regent on behalf of Victoria. Despite his failing health he lived to see Victoria’s eighteenth birthday, and just twenty seven days later, on 20th June 1837, he died and Victoria became Queen.
