1837 - Coronation of Queen Victoria

Victoria’s accession to the throne on the 28th June 1838 was the beginning of a 63 year long reign, the longest of any British monarch
to date. The Victorian era marked a period of rapid industrial, military and political progress within Britain, and so it is at this point that literary historians often mark the end of the Romantic period.
