Did you Know…? Queen Victoria

  1. Queen Victoria (1819-1901) was dubbed the “Grandmother of Europe”. She married Prince Albert of Germany. Their nine children married the children from various nobles and royal families, includingQueen Victoria Russia. So far, Queen Victoria was the longest-reigning monarch, having ruled 64 years. She was so committed to her husband that, when Albert died, she became very depressed and reclusive, to the point of nearly abandoning her subjects.
  2. Queen Victoria has also been credited with starting the tradition of white weddings and white bridal gowns, by selecting a white gown for her wedding to Prince Albert. This was quickly carried on by wealthy brides and continues to this day.
  3. Queen Victoria was a carrier of Haemophilia. Haemophilia is a disease that prevents the clotting of blood even in the smallest of wounds. The queen, as a carrier, was not affected, but eventually, her future great-grandson, the Tsarevitch Alexei, heir to the throne of the Russian empire and the youngest son of the last Tsar Nicholas II, was haemophilic. Most often, it is women who carry this disease, so a male affected by it would be as a result of his mother being the carrier. In Alexei’s case, it was his mother, Tsarina Alexandra (granddaughter of Queen Victoria), who was the carrier.

You can't wake a person who is pretending to be asleep. Born in 92, I am currently into business after finishing my graduation along with a diploma course of one year. I am too much into helping people in their problems and I love to inspire people to have a better living and live a life they truly deserve as well as desire. I love to learn from people’s experience. One thing good about me is that there’s a lot of emotions and honesty within me. The more I post, the more you will know me. Keep smiling always !!! :-) ;-)
