Queen Victoria of England (Great Britain).  Victoria greeted as queen, painting by H.T. Wells, R.A.  The princess had just celebrated her eighteenth birthday when the king died, in June 1837.  The Archbishop of Canterbury and the Lord Chancellor started at once to carry the news to the young sovereign.  They reached Kensington Palace in the early dawn and knocked for some time before they roused the sleepy porter.  When the door was opened they announced that they must see Victoria.  The answer was, "The princess is in such sweet slumber that we do not venture to disturb her."  Then the archbishop said, "We are come to see the queen on business of state."  Victoria did not wait to dress, but entered the room in a loose robe, her hair hanging down her back.  Her eyes were bright with tears as she listened to the announcement that she was the queen.
