Who succeeded Queen Victoria?

Her son, King Edward the Seventh, suceeded her in 1901 and ruled until his death in 1910.

Edward VII was the eldest son of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. Born in 1841, he did not inherit the throne until his mother's death in 1901, when he was 59 years old. Given little responsibility during Victoria's lifetime, Bertie (as he was called by his family) devoted himself to a life of pleasure. Despite his 1863 marriage to Princess Alexandra of Denmark, with whom he had six children, he was infamous for his many mistresses and playboy lifestyle.

As king, Edward VII was popular with his people and abroad, but he reigned for only nine years before dying in 1910. He was succeeded by his oldest surviving son, King George V.

Note from a pedant, with reference to some alternate wordings of this question:

The title Queen (or King) of England has not existed for over 300 years.

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is Queen of The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

However, the Queen's Official Birthday, also known as "the Queen's Birthday" is the day on which the birthday of the monarch of the United Kingdom and the other Commonwealth realms is officially celebrated.

This varies from country to country and is rarely the actual day of the current monarch's birthday. Most Commonwealth realms release a Birthday Honours List on the official birthday.

Also in the UK the Monarchs Official Birthday is celebrated on 1st, 2nd, or (rarely) 3rd Saturday in June with a Parade which includes Trooping the colour ceremony.
Queen Elizabeth II is aged 87 years. She was born on April 21, 1926.

Let us look at the scope of the Empire: Great Britain, then including Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, (combined Militarily as ANZAC in War I) South Africa, Rhodesia, Egypt, Cyprus, and various Island states.

Why did Queen Victoria have so many children with Prince Albert?

Answer 1

Several reasons.

One was because they loved each other and wanted to have sex with each other.

The second was because Queen Victoria used them as pawns so to say to marry them off to other royal families as as a result of that every current monarch in Europe is somehow related to Queen Victoria including the monarch consorts.

Answer 2

In those days there was no reliable form of contraception. Doctors were attempting to work out a rhythm method, but they did not understand enough about the menstrual cycle to do this accurately. Condoms were not efficient until late in Victoria's life, when she was a widow.

People who could afford to look after as many children as might be born - as the Queen obviously could! - made no attempt to prevent conception. Queen Victoria's grandmother, Queen Charlotte, had given birth to fifteen children.

Who was Queen Victoria?

Queen Victoria was the longest reigning British monarch and the figurehead of a vast empire. She oversaw vast changes in British society and gave her name to an age Victoria was born in London on 24 May 1819, the only child of Edward, Duke of Kent, and Victoria Maria Louisa of Saxe-Coburg. She succeeded her uncle, William IV, in 1837, at the age of 18, and her reign dominated the rest of the century. In 1840 she married her first cousin, Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg Gotha. For the next 20 years they lived in close harmony and had a family of nine children, many of whom eventually married into the European monarchy. On her accession, Victoria adopted the Whig prime minister Lord Melbourne as her political mentor. In 1840, his influence was replaced by that of Prince Albert. The German prince never really won the favour of the British public, and only after 17 years was he given official recognition, with the title of Prince Consort. However, Victoria relied heavily on Albert and it was during his lifetime that she was most active as a ruler. Britain was evolving into a constitutional monarchy in which the monarch had few powers and was expected to remain above party politics, although Victoria did sometimes express her views very forcefully in private. Victoria never fully recovered from Albert's death in 1861 and she remained in mourning for the rest of her life. Her subsequent withdrawal from public life made her unpopular, but during the late 1870s and 1880s she gradually returned to public view and, with increasingly pro-imperial sentiment, she was restored to favour with the British public. After the Indian Mutiny in 1857, the government of India was transferred from the East India Company to the Crown and in 1877, Victoria became Empress of India. Her empire also included Canada, Australia, India, New Zealand, and large parts of Africa. During this period, Britain was largely uninvolved in European affairs, apart from involvement in the Crimean War (1853 - 1856). In 1887, Victoria's Golden Jubilee and, 10 years later, her Diamond Jubilee were celebrated with great enthusiasm. Having witnessed a revolution in British government, huge industrial expansion and the growth of a worldwide empire, Victoria died on 22 January 1901 at Osborne House on the Isle of Wight.

Did queen victoria change the name of the capital city?

I don't see how Her Majesty could do this. London , England is historically the Capital city. She was given the title of Empress of India largely through the Royal Titles Bill engineered by Mr. Disraeli. Prior to the Royal Titles bill, while there were colonies all over the map, strictly speaking, the term British Empire was not used, after it- well it became standard usage. ( now called Commonwealth among the affililated ex-British colonies such as Canada, Australia, Bahamas, etc. Victoria did not change the name of the Capital, but her own status was amplified from Queen to Empress.
