Queen Victoria was one of the longest-reigning monarchs in history, ruling for 64 years. She dedicated many of these years to arranging alliances with other powerful states around Europe.

The result was such a vast distribution of British royals around the continent that Queen Victoria became known as the "Grandmother of Europe."
