Queen Victoria (born Alexandrina Victoria; 24 May 1819 – 22 January 1901) was the Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland from 1837 to 1901. She was born in London to a German princess and an English prince in 1819. She became queen at the age of 18 after her uncle William died.
Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom married her cousin Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha on 10 February 1840. She chose to wear a white wedding dress, which was considered an unusual choice at a time when colours were more usual, made from heavy silk satin.

- Characteristics and naming
MS Queen Victoria is a Vista-class cruise ship operated by the Cunard Line and is named after the British Monarch Queen Victoria. She is of the same basic design as other Vista-class cruise ships including Queen Elizabeth. At 90,049 GT she is the smallest of Cunard's ships in operation. Her facilities include seven restaurants, thirteen bars, three swimming pools, a ballroom, and a theatre.
Unlike many previous Cunard ships, Queen Victoria is not a traditional ocean liner as she does not have the heavy plating throughout the hull. However the bow was constructed with heavier plating to cope with the transatlantic run, and the ship has a high freeboard. The Queen Mary 2 had cost approximately $300,000 US per berth, nearly double that of many contemporary cruise ships, so Cunard made the economical decision to base Queen Victoria on a modified Vista-class cruise ship, and Queen Eliza

Queen Victoria's exterior design closely resembles that of Vista-class ships built for various cruise companies. A feature which distinguishes her from her younger fleet mate, MS Queen Elizabeth, is the more angled sloping stern, as compared to the newer ship's vertical one. In a

Queen Victoria can carry 3,000 tons of heavy fuel and 150 tons of marine gas oil, consuming 12 tons per hour for maximum output. Although the ship burns heavy fuel, it uses low-sulphur fuel in certain jurisdictions.
On Queen Victoria's 21 December 2007 voyage, 122 guests and 11 crew on board contracted norovirus. It was officially attributed to a guest who had already contracted the virus prior to boarding the ship. The outbreak was also popularly attributed to Duchess Camila's initial failure to break the champagne bottle during the ship's christening, which is a bad omen in naval tradition. While most recovered, 30 were still reported to be ill at that time. This was not reported on the CDC's website, whi

Queen Victoria was the monarch of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and of the British Empire from 20 June 1837 until her death on 22 January 1901. At the start of her reign, responsible government outside of the United Kingdom itself was unknown, but starting in the 1840s this would change.Premier (party)Premier (party)PeriodAssembly1stJames Boyle Uniacke (Liberal)February 2, 1848 April 3, 18541stJames Boyle Uniacke (Liberal)February 2, 1848 April 3, 18542ndWilliam Young (Liberal) (1st of 2 non-consecutive terms)April 4, 1854 February 20, 18572ndWilliam Young (Liberal) (1st of 2 non-consecutive terms)April 4, 1854 February 20, 1857
The Queen Victoria Hospital (QVH), located in East Grinstead, West Sussex, England is the specialist reconstructive surgery centre for the south east of England, and also provides services at clinics across the region. It has become world-famous for its pioneering burns and plastic surgery.
The state funeral of Queen Victoria took place in February 1901; it had been 64 years since the last burial of a monarch. Victoria left strict instructions regarding the service and associated ceremonies and instituted a number of changes, several of which set a precedent for state (and indeed ceremonial) funerals that have taken place since.
The Queen Victoria Building (abbreviated as the QVB) is a heritage-listed late-nineteenth-century building designed by the architect George McRae located at 429–481 George Street in the Sydney central business district, in the Australian state of New South Wales.
