No close family anniversaries. Born in England on this date in 1819: Alexandrina Victoria of the House of Hanover, the future Queen Victoria of England. She reigned for 63 years and seven months, longer than any other British monarch, and longer than any female monarch anywhere. (Elizabeth II is running strong to break Victoria’s records, still reigning after 63 years and four months.) Top photo: Victoria’s coronation in 1837, painted by George Hayter. Below: portrait of Princess Victoria at four years of age, by  Stephen Poyntz Denning.Victoria_aged_Four
