Victoria in Death

From Tiny-Librarian:
On January 22nd, in 1901, Queen Victoria passed away at Osborne House
She was succeeded on the throne by her eldest son, Prince Albert Edward, who would reign as Edward VII. He had been at her deathbed along with her oldest grandson, Wilhelm II.

She was 81 years old, and had been Queen for 63 years, 216 days, giving her name to an era and setting a record for the longest reigning British Monarch which still stands today.
