May 2019: 200 years since the birth of Queen Victoria
May 2019 marks 200 years since the birth of Queen Victoria (24 May 1819 – 22 January 1901).

Not only the namesake of many a public house in Great Britain, Queen Victoria was also photographed, illustrated, sculpted and engraved numerous times throughout her reign, from her happy marriage to Albert through to her dignified widowhood. The akg-images archive presents all manner of different depictions of the monarch, including a surprising African head! We present a small selection.
