economic and technological changes
that occurred at this time.
His period of reign that consisted of 64
years was the longest in the history of
the British crown, recently passed by
Queen Elizabeth II.
Though queen, as an unmarried young woman Victoria was required by social
convention to live with her mother, despite their differences over the Kensington
System and her mother's continued reliance on Conroy. When Victoria
complained to Melbourne that her mother's close proximity promised "torment
for many years", Melbourne sympathized but said it could be avoided by
marriage. She showed interest in Alberto's
education for the future role he would have to play
as her husband, but she resisted attempts to rush
her into wedlock.
Victoria continued to praise Alberto. Alberto and
Victoria felt mutual affection and the Queen
proposed to him on 15 October 1839, just five
days after he had arrived at Windsor. They were
married on 10 February 1840, in the Chapel Royal

over the following seventeen years, she and Albert
had a further eight children.
One of Victoria's children, the second child, Leopold, was the first descendant of
Victoria who suffered hemophilia B and two of her five daughters, Alice and
Beatrice, they discovered, after having children, who were carriers of the
defective gene. Among the royal descendants who suffered this disease are her
grandchildren. The presence of this disease in the offspring of the queen, but
not in her ancestors, led to speculations that claim that Victoria's real father was
not the Duke of Kent but a hemophiliac.
It is more likely to have been a spontaneous mutation, and Victoria's father was
old enough when conceived and hemophilia occurs most often in children born
to older parents.
