"He dominated the Victorian Age"

The Victorian era of the United Kingdom was the period of Queen Victoria's reign, from June 1837 until her death on the 22nd of January 1901. Her  reign was a long period of prosperity for Great Britain, and saw the development of an educated middle class. The era was preceded by the Georgian period and succeeded by the Edwardian period. The latter half of the Victorian era roughly coincided with the first portion of the Belle Époque era of continental Europe and the Gilded Age of the United States.
