The world today consists of children roaming the streets, technology taking over the world, and being able to work wherever you'd like but, could you imagine a life without all these things? Believe it or not there was a time in life where these things were very uncommon to see. This would be known as the victorian era. This time period was between 1837 and 1901. Daily life was very different from now. Health, social classes, and fashion are just three examples of how daily life was different in the victorian era.
Queen Victoria's reign, lasted 63 years, from 1837 to 1901. She ascended the throne of Great Britain, when she was 18. Despite being the Queen of Britain, and a very influential and prominent person, she also had an impact on Australian history. In Australia the most apparent legacy of Queen Victoria's reign is manifested in the names of the two states, Victoria and Queensland. There are also a large number of other important buildings and places, named in her honor such as, the Queen Victoria Building, in Sydney.
The Victorian Era of British history was the time of Queen Victoria 's rule from 20 June 1837 until her passing, on 22 January 1901. It was a long stretch of peace, prosperous period regarding sensibilities and political concerns to the section of the Reform Act 1832. The time was gone before by the Georgian period and took after by the Edwardian period. The laterhalf of the Victorian age generally concurred with the first divide of the Belle period of mainland Europe and the Gilded Age of the United States. Among the numerous improvements that made Victoria 's rule appear to be extraordinarily not quite the same as prior periods in British history, two are particularly meriting consideration. The primary is the French Revolution (1789-1815), and the second is the Industrial Revolution that started around 1780 and quickened all through the Victorian Age.
Victoria was Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britian and Ireland from June 20 1837 until she died in January 1901. She was the daughter of Prince Edward, and was raised under extreme supervision by German born mother, Princess Victoria. Queen Victoria inherited the throne by age 18, after her three brothers unfortunately died.
Times started to transform in the 12th and 13th century with how the government ran in England. Henry II was King at this time and had developed a government system where he had professionals work for him. These professionals had schooling and got paid salary by the King. The government was very institutionalized with royal officials administering both revenues and law. The king did not have to be present much, in place, he had his officials do administrative work and record keeping. The king traveled all throughout the European continent because he was able to, while his working officials did his work in place.
Queen Victoria & Prince Albert were born May 24, 1819 and August 26, 1819. Prince Albert was Queen Victoria’s husband. Albert was devoted to helping his wife serve as monarch and over time he became an essential aid to the queen that advised her on political and diplomatic affairs. Their marriage was very happy and they loved each other and being together. They were portrayed as an ideal family. Albert tragically died in 1861, at the age of 42. For many years after his death Victoria lived in isolation, and eventually appeared more in public, but continued to wear black, mourning his death for the rest of her life. Queen Victoria died many years later on January 22, 1901.
On June 20, 1837, just four months after her eighteenth birthday, Victoria was paid a visit by the Archbishop of Canterbury, and Lord Conyngham. (Chamberlain) These men informed her of her Uncle William’s death, but then bowed before her honoring their new Queen. Her coronation day was set for June 28, 1838. (Kirwan, 190) Victoria came to the throne, the people of
he Anglican Church was the main church in the Victorian Era, it was also known as The Church of England. The Gregorian Mission of Augustine, the english reformation, the excommunication of Elizabeth I and the wider reformation in the mainland of Europe are all events that contributed towards the development of the Anglican Church (Church of England).
Queen Victoria was born on May 24, 1819, in Kensington Palace in London. Her parents were Edward, the Duke of Kent, and Princess Victoria of Saxe-Coburg. When Queen Victoria was 8 months old her father passed away, and her mother reacted by shunning Victoria's uncles on her father’s side, William IV and George IV. Having had a secluded upbringing her personality hardened and she grew into having strong prejudices towards others and became very stubborn. She was also inclined to self-pity. Her mother's advisor Sir John Conroy twisted her childhood from her. He was the one who had convinced her mother to shun the uncles, and convinced her to raise Victoria by the "Kensington system." This system isolated Victoria from most, and, in Conroy's hopes, would make her depend on him to rule the country. When both her uncle's passed away before succeeding the throne, at 18 years old she became the Queen, and she did so alone. The one thing her mother did teach her was to be cautious in who she friended. Victoria's memory held firm of those who mistreated her, and she was not one to 'forgive and forget'. Queen Victoria disagreed with some of the traditions and values that had been around. For one she hated childbirth and everything to do with children, yet she was supposed to represent motherhood and family and she did. Even though she
The Victorian Era is a time in history in which societal expectations of men and women were formidably difficult to meet. Societal expectations made it harder for one to succeed in a relationship, causing many people of the time to criticize the societal norm. Among these people were authors Jane Austen and Christina Rossetti, who each wrote a unique piece criticizing these beliefs. The two authors expressed their opposing views to the time’s expectations of male to female relations in their literature pieces “The Goblin Market” and “Love and Friendship.” Christina Rossetti wrote “The Goblin Market:” a piece in which the lives of two independent women are depicted to be ruined by loathsome creatures representative of males and relationships. Similarly, Jane Austen wrote “Love and Friendship:” a tale that depicts two females whose lives come to a sudden decline due to the loss of their husbands and their naive nature towards true love. Within both pieces, Rossetti and Austen expose the hardship in attaining the highest profound connection in male to female relationships through the barriers of power relations, social class, and the fantasy of true love.
Born on 24 May, 1819 in Kensington Palace, Alexandrina Victoria was the only daughter of Edward, the Duke of Kent and Victoria Maria Louisa of Saxe-Coburg. At birth, Victoria was the fifth in line after her father and his three older brothers. Eight months after her birth, her father had died and she was the next in line as her three uncles before her had no legitimate children who survived. In 1830 after her uncle George IV died, she became heiress presumptive next to her surviving uncle, William IV. The Regency Act of 1830 made special provision for the Duchess of Kent to act as her regent just in case William died while Victoria was still a minor. King William in 1836 declared in the Duchess’ presence that he wanted to live until
