“To celebrate the 200th anniversary of Queen Victoria’s birth, a special exhibition, Queen Victoria’s Palace, tells the story of how the young queen transformed Buckingham Palace from a private house into a working royal residence. Together with Prince Albert, she made Buckingham Palace a rallying point for the nation, a powerful symbol of the British Monarchy, and a family home for their nine children”.

Who was Queen Victoria? ¿Quién era la Reina Victoria?

“Victoria (Alexandrina Victoria; 24 May 1819 – 22 January 1901) was Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland from 20 June 1837 until her death. On 1 May 1876, she adopted the additional title of Empress of India.

Daughter of Prince Edward Augustus and granddaughter of King George III, who both died in 1820, Victoria was raised under close supervision by her mother, Princess Victoria of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld. She inherited the throne aged 18 when her uncle, King William IV, died, by which time the United Kingdom was an established constitutional monarchy in which the sovereign held relatively little direct political power”.

“Victoria del Reino Unido (Londres, 24 de mayo de 1819 – isla de Wight, 22 de enero de 1901) fue monarca británica desde la muerte de su tío paterno, Guillermo IV, el 20 de junio de 1837, hasta su fallecimiento el 22 de enero de 1901, mientras que como emperatriz de la India fue la primera en ostentar el título desde el 1 de enero de 1877 hasta su deceso.

Era hija del príncipe Eduardo, duque de Kent y de Strathearn, cuarto hijo del rey Jorge III. Tanto el duque como el rey murieron en 1820, lo que provocó que Victoria fuera criada bajo la supervisión de su madre, la princesa alemana Victoria de Sajonia-Coburgo-Saalfeld. Heredó el trono a los dieciocho años, tras la muerte sin descendencia legítima de tres tíos paternos”.
