During the nineteenth century Britain’s overseas territories became “the empire on which the sun never sets”.
As its figurehead for more than 60 years, Queen Victoria gave her name to countless locations around the world – an Australian State, the capital of a Canadian province, and a spectacular African waterfall are examples that spring to mind.
