Interesting facts about Queen Victoria:

- She was the first Queen of Canada, sitting on the throne when this country was founded in 1867.

- She stood just 5 feet tall.

- It’s said it was Victoria who started the tradition of a bride wearing white. Before her wedding a woman would simply wear her best dress, no matter what colour it was.
