QUEEN VICTORIA AND QUEEN ELIZABETH II




Queen Elizabeth II became the longest-reigning monarch in British history on 9 September 2015. This documentary compares the lives and the reigns of two extraordinary women who have dominated periods of remarkable change:  Victoria and  Elizabeth II.
Queen Victoria's reign of 63 years and seven months is known as the Victorian era. It was a period of political, industrial, cultural, scientific, and military change within the United Kingdom, and was marked by a great expansion of the British Empire. She was the last British monarch of the House of Hanover. Her son and successor, Edward VII, belonged to the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, the line of his father.
