Victorian Era

Victorian Era (1837-1901)

The 64-year reign of Queen Victoria, during which there were vast political and social changes, a rapid growth of industrialization, but a retention of strict moral rules and decorum which were challenged during the last half of her reign. "Victorian" now implies a "straight-laced, old fashioned" approach to both morals and standards. The Victorian Era was, in fact, a time of great change from the Dark Ages to an Age of Enlightenment.
