63 years on the throne of a world empire
Queen Victoria's reign over the British Empire was so formative that the era is still referred to as the Victorian Age. She received her nickname \"Grandmother of Europe\" because of her numerous descendants in the European high nobility.
The Queen's mtDNA profile could be determined from a comparison of the profiles of Alexandra, the last Russian Empress and Prince Phillip, the Duke of Edinburgh and husband of Queen Elizabeth II. These analyses also made it possible to identify the remains of Empress Alexandra, who was murdered with her family during the revolution in Russia in 1917.
Queen Victoria belonged to haplogroup H in the maternal line.
