What is Alexandrina Victoria famous for?
Queen Victoria was best known for her nearly 64-year reign (1837-1901). It was the longest in British history, and even became known as the Victorian Era.
Queen Victoria was named after two people. She was not named until her baptism because people could not agree on one. Her father had several ideas about what her name could be (Charlotte, Elizabeth) but his brother King George IV vetoed them. He then consented for her to be named Alexandrina Victoria after her god-father Czar Alexander of Russia and her mother Duchess Victoria of Kent.
Queen Victoria's full name was Alexandrina Victoria (after her godfather Czar Alexander of Russia) when she was younger she was called Drina, but most of the time was called Victoria Because so many of her children married into other European Royal Families, she is sometimes called "The Grandmother of Europe."
