Victoria's reign was an age of huge and lasting social changes; the age of Palmerston, Gladstone, and Disraeli; of Dickens, Thackeray, Macaulay, Trollope, Browning, Tennyson, Robert Louis Stevenson, Gilbert and Sullivan, Oscar Wilde; of Florence Nightingale, the first bicycle and the first electric light bulb, the Salvation Army, the first Dr. Barnardo's home and the American Civil War. By the end of her long life, Victoria was a witness to the shift in world power and the stage was set for a new century of unimaginable turmoil. But her own presence had been so dominant that the age which ended with her death would forever be remembered by the name.
