At 94 years old, she is the oldest reigning British Queen …
… and also the oldest person on the British throne …
And her face can be seen on most coins and bills.
She married Prince Philip 73 years ago – no other person on the British throne has been married longer than she.
At 94 years of age, Queen Elizabeth II may no longer win gold in cross-country skiing or in the pole vault – but the monarch has already set a few records. It may not shine in the field of sports, but no one can fool you in the following seven disciplines, according to the “Adelswelt” website.
1. Queen Elizabeth II ruled the longest in Great Britain
On September 9, 2015, she replaced the former title holder Queen Victoria (1819–1901). Your great-great-great-grandmother ruled for more than 63 years. The reigning British monarch has been on the throne since 1952 – more than 68 years. In July she said it was “nothing I have ever strived for”.
2. She is the oldest queen
Not only does she rule the longest, Queen Elizabeth II is also the oldest queen. Here, too, she has already overtaken Queen Victoria – she was 81 years old at the time of her death. Queen Elizabeth II is already 94.
3. She is the oldest person on the British throne
The Queen is not only the oldest queen on the throne – she has also replaced the longest male monarch. King George III (1738-1820) was – like Queen Victoria – 81 years old.
4. The British woman is the oldest living ruler in the world
At 94, Queen Elizabeth II is the world’s oldest living monarch. Before her, Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud of Saudi Arabia (1924-2015) claimed this record for himself. He was 90 years old.
5. Queen Elizabeth II is head of state of most countries
At the moment the Queen rules over a total of 16 nations – making her the head of state of most countries.
6. Your portrait graces most currencies
The British Queen’s face is more often on currency than any other monarch. Her portrait is immortalized on almost all coins and bills in England and the Commonwealth.
7. Their marriage lasted the longest
No other person on the British throne has been married longer than she. A proud 73 years ago, Queen Elizabeth II gave Prince Philip (99) the yes.
