The Treasure Madness-An Exceptional Reign:Guide



Alexandrina Victoria of Hanover was Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain, Ireland, Canada and Australia, as well as Empress of India. Her reign of 63 years and 7 months is the second longest in the history of the United Kingdom after Elizabeth II. It's synonymous to a series of profound social, economic and technological changes in the United Kingdom. Known as the Victorian era, this period marks the apogee of the British industrial revolution and the explosive expansion of this empire. Many buildings and iconic places were built during this period: the Waterloo station was opened in 1848, the famous bell of Big Ben rang for the first time in 1859, and the famous Tower Bridge was inaugurated in 1897. This era also breathed a wind of innovation into the field of art and culture. Poetry was then predominant, but during the reign of Victoria the literary genre of the novel was privileged, especially thanks to authors such as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and his famous Sherlock Holmes. On the science side, it was during this period that Charles Darwin published The Origin of Species, the founding text of the theory of evolution. Greater freedom of expression also began to enter into habits. This led to rivalries between the authors, like the Brontë sisters and Austen. Their ways of writing were in fact radically opposite; the sisters used their imagination to create stories from scratch, while Jane Austen devoted herself to transcribing her personal tragedies.
