  1. 1. QUEEN VICTORIA Hello we are Silvia, Brian, Gerard and I, Patricia and talk about our work of Queen Victoria. First Brian explain the birth and family, then Silvia will explain the coronation and the Victorian era. Then I'll tell you about the wedding and hemophilia. And finally Gerard will talk about the death and the succession of the queen.  BIRTH AND FAMILY She was named Alexandrina Victoria was born on 24 May 1819 and died 24 May 1819 (at 82 years). His mother had been previously married to Prince Charles of Leiningen and Emili this marriage were born two children, Prince Charles Frederick of Leiningen and Princess Feodora of Leiningen. His father Prince Edward, Duke of Kent and Streathem who died at 8 months of her birth because of pneumonia and died two weeks after his grandfather, king George III of the United Kingdom, which turned the young princess in second on the list of succession to the Crown and heiress presumptive of the Prince of Wales and future King William IV of the United Kingdom had no children  CORONATION OF QUEEN VICTORIA The Queen Victoria ascended the throne at 18 years on June 28, 1837 and remained in it longer than any other king in Europe. His reign of 64 years was the longest in British history and is known as the Victorian era. It was a period of industrial, cultural, political, scientific, and military change in the UK and was marked by the expansion of the British Empire.  FEATURES OF THE VICTORIAN ERA 1
  2. 2. The Victorian era began in 1837 and finishes in 1901. Britain became a the first world power for the welfare of their economy and the extent and importance of his conquests. This period England suffered great changes that helped the industrialization of the country. As a result of industrialization improved the living conditions of the working class.  CARACTERÍSTICAS DE LA ÉPOCA VICTORIANA One of the most important kingdoms about the expansion and marked social, 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.  Marriage 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 of St. James's Palace, London. Victoria was besotted. Alberto became an important political adviser as well as the Queen's companion, replacing Lord Melbourne as the dominant, influential figure in the first half of her life. Victoria's mother was evicted from the palace, to Ingested House in Belgrave Square. Through Alberto's mediation, relations between mother and daughter slowly improved. 2
  3. 3. During Victoria's first pregnancy in 1840, in the first few months of the marriage, 18-year-old Edward Oxford attempted to assassinate her while she was riding in a carriage with Prince Alberto on her way to visit her mother. In the immediate aftermath of the attack, Victoria's popularity soared The Queen hated being pregnant, nevertheless, over the following seventeen years, she and Albert had a further eight children.  Hemophilia 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.  Death and succession Victoria spent the Christmas of 1900 at Osborne house. She had a rheumatism in his legs and in his eyes has a cataracts. In January, Victoria felt weak and unwell, and she died on Tuesday 22 January of 1901, at half past sic in the evening. When she died had 81 years old. Her son and successor King Edward VII, and her eldest grandson emperor Wilhelm II of Germany, were at her deathbed. Her pet was in the deathbed too. Her funeral was held on Saturday, 2 February in St. George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle rand after two days of lying in state she was interred beside Prince Albert in Frogmore Mausoleum at Windsor Great Park. In 1897 , Victoria had written the instructions for her funeral, which was to be military. In the funeral she was dressed in a white dress and a wedding veil. In the coffin was an array of moments commemorating her extended family, friends and servants. 3
  4. 4. With a reign of 63 years, seven month and two days, Victoria is the longest reigning British monarch and the longest reigning queen regnant in the world history. She was the last monarch of Britain from the house of Hanover. Her son and heir Edward VII belonged to her husband’s. In the picture we can see a poster when queen Victoria died.
