On location for Queen Victoria's Empire.
At the time of Queen Victoria's birth in 1819, England was an agrarian society. Within a few short decades, this small island nation would be transformed into an industrial superpower, with an empire spanning the globe. "Queen Victoria's Empire" is both the story of this remarkable time, and an engaging portrait of a queen who ruled over one-fifth of the world's population.
