Her sovereignty of 70 years and 214 days is the highest of any British monarch as well as the longest recorded of any female head of state.

The 42nd of a line of kings as well as queens of first England, then Britain, and after then the United Kingdom, since William the Conqueror; she was also the sixth queen of England as well as the fourth of the UK. Apart from these additionally she was queen and head of state of 15 other countries, stretching from Australia, Fiji, and New Zealand to the Bahamas and Canada; all countries are part of the former British empire. She was head of the Commonwealth games for seven decades, whose 54 countries consist of 2.1 billion people around a third of the globe’s population.

The monumental reign has been closure in British history after her death and ushers in a new, undecided one. She is succeeded by her son prince Charles, who automatically conquered the throne with her death.
