Which king or queen ruled the longest?
Ruled by all English kings and queens (click & look also on current monarchies)Queen Elizabeth II (* 1926) the longest. She was crowned 68 years ago on June 2, 1953 and is still on her throne today (status 4/2021). On April 9, 2021, her husband Prince Philip (with whom she was married for 74 years) died at the age of 99. Enjoyed with 63.5 years of reign Queen Victoria (1837-1901) the second longest term in office. Only then does an English king follow: George III (1760-1820) held the scepter for 60 years.
What were the names of the first English kings?
In British history books, the chapter “English kings and queens” traditionally begins with Egbert from Wessex (802-839). Wessex (in south-west England) was only one of seven Anglo-Saxon kingdoms during the heptarchy. The others were called Sussex, Kent (both in the south), East Anglia, Essex (both in the east), Merzien (in central England) and Northern Humbria (in the north). Æthelstan (924-939), on the other hand, conquered the Danish kingdom of Jórvík (Northern Humbria) in 927 and thus became the ruler of all of Britain. With the conquest, he was therefore the first king to rule over the entire area of what is now England.
Which queen was the first English queen?
Was the first Queen of England Maria Tudor ("The bloody one"). She was the daughter of Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon and was born on February 18, 1516. Because Henry VIII absolutely wanted a male heir to the throne, he divorced Katharina and turned to his lover Anne Boleyn. But even further marriages and attempts at procreation were unsuccessful: There shouldn't be boys, which is why Maria Tudor was named as a first english queen took the throne despite being declared a bastard by her father. Because “the bloody” Maria wanted to “educate” England as a Catholic, she had around 300 English Protestants burned as heretics from 1555 until her death in 1558.
