Queen Victoria was the longest reigning of the British monarchs, coming to the throne at the age of eighteen. She was the daughter of the Duke of Kent, fourth son of George the third and of Princess Victoria Leiningen of Saxe-Coburg. It seemed likely from her earliest years that she would one day inherit the throne, and so was carefully brought up, under the care of a Hanoverian governess,Fraulein Louise Lehzen.
Moreover, King Michael of Romania (born on the 25th of October 1921) and Her Royal Highness are third degree cousins. They are both great-great-grandchildren of Queen Victoria.Elizabeth is celebrating her Diamond Jubilee in 2012, marking 60 years as Queen, as we speak.

The centre and most frequented part of the city is St Mark's Square. At the eastern end are St Mark's Cathedral and the Doge's Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the two most important and imposing structures in Venice. The cathedral—begun about 828, restored after a fire in 976, and rebuilt between 1047 and about 1071—is an outstanding example of Byzantine architecture. The palace—begun about 814, destroyed four times by fire, and each time rebuilt on a more magnificent scale—is a remarkable building in Italian Gothic with some early Renaissance elements. The northern side of the piazza is occupied by the Procuratie Vecchie (1496) and the southern side by the Procuratie Nuove (1584), both ...

This room, dominated by the portrait of the 1sr Duke of Wellington, was conceived by George IV to commemorate the deafet of Napoleon. He comissioned portraits from Sir Thomas Lawrence of the Allied monarchs, statesmen and commanders who had contributed to the victory.

It was part of Sir Charles Long’s brief for the reconstruction of the Castle that a setting be created for Lawrence’s portraits, and for annual banquet on the annyversary of Waterloo on 15 June. Wyatville chose the larger of Edward III’s inner courtyards – Horn Court – and roofed it over with an ingenious timber ceiling containing a raking clerestory reminiscent of ship’s carpentry.

During Elizabeth’s reign, England expanded trade overseas and the merchant community grew. Private shipbuilding boomed and navigational advances made long sea voyages safer. England’s chief commodity was woolen cloth, traded mostly at the Dutch port of Antwerp for finished goods and such luxuries as French wines. Cloth exports grew over the course of the reign, but suffered from competition from finer Spanish products and from Antwerp’s decline after its harbor silted up and became impassable by the mid-1560s. In the 1560s financier Sir Thomas Gresham founded the Royal Exchange to help merchants find secure markets for their goods.
Fiul mai mare al regelui Henric, printul Edward, a creat un partid regalist puternic, iar Henric s-a debarasat de controlul pe care baronii il exercitau asupra lui.

Avand nevoie de cel mai mare sprijin posibil pentru a reduce autoritatea regala, de Montfort a convocat Marele Consiliu, care reprezenta comunitatea, pentru aprobarea noilor taxe si a altor masuri.
Cea mai mare parte a castelelor normande timpurii erau construite din lemn, ridicate in graba din motive de securitate, si a trecut inca un secol pana la aparitia castelelor de piatra.

Era elizabetana vazuta asa de bine din cauza contrastelor de dinainte si de dupa ea. A fost o perioada plina de pace intre Reformarea Engleza , protestanti si catolici si intre Parlament si Monarhie, batalie care va marca sec. XVII. Neintelegerile intre protestanti si catolici au incetat, pentru un timp, din cauza Intelegerii Religioase Elizabethane iar Parlamentul nu avea inca destula putere ca conteste absolutismul regal.Era elizabetana
