Queen Victoria ruled Great Britain from June 20, 1837 to January 22, 1901. Victoria brought a 64 year period of “peace, prosperity, refined sensibilities and national self-confidence for Britain.”
This period is called the Victorian Age of Britain.
Culturally, the Victorian Age marked the transition away from eighteenth century rationalism of the Georgian Age.
The nineteenth century moved from romanticism toward realism in social values and the arts. The era is popularly associated with the Victorian values of social and sexual restraint. During Victoria¹s reign, the British Empire entered a period of rapid economic expansion. This expansion, combined with increasing industrialization and mechanization, established a prolonged period of international growth.
