When William IV (her uncle) died in 1837, Victoria became Queen when she was only 18.

For the rest of her life she wore black. It was rare to see her in public til the 1860's, when she was persuaded to open Parliament in 66. People had tried to kill her 7 times after that because she was critized for living in seclusion. Those greatened her popularity. She convinced her ministers not to arise in the Prussia-Austria-Denmark war. She also sent the German Emperor a letter helping him prevent another war. She soon became the symbol of the British Empire. Victoria made many more historical actions during her time period, but then died on January 22, 1901.
