The ultimate matriarch, queen victoria was born 200 years ago today.
with her children marrying into european and russian royalty, the british empire she built both colonially and ancestrally was to be dismantled by the first world war and subsequent modern era.
the monarch’s impact on global history however, remains seismic.
the british throne is still occupied by her direct royal line, now held by her great-great-granddaughter, queen elizabeth ii.
swipe through our gallery here to trace her lineage and explore our extensive royal collections.
beginning with a formidable portrait of victoria by one of her favoured photography studios, w. & d. downey, who also took the next portrait of edward vii, shown here as a vintage cabinet card.
from there an early photograph of george v as a child, followed by his son; briefly edward viii, he is pictured with wallis simpson, the divorcee he abdicated the throne to marry.
his brother, king george vi, is shown with the future queen elizabeth and their corgis, echoed in the next portrait of elizabeth and her own children, prince charles and princess anne.
finally, we have next in line to the throne charles, pictured with william and harry, before prince william himself - set to succeed his father - ends our gallery holding his eldest son, prince george of cambridge.
check in with @gettyarchive later, who will today be sharing the earliest portrait of queen victoria by a female photographer.
