The world's first postage stamp was issued by Great Britain in 1840. Featuring a bust of Queen Victoria, it has come to be known as the "Penny Black." It also marked the introduction of "uniform penny postage" in a mail system: the rate to carry a letter to ANY destination within the country was now the same, and not based on distance carried.

Queen Victoria Few women in history have had the opportunity to rule an entire Empire but Alexandrina Victoria Hanover, did precisely that. Reigning for an astonishing 63 years (from 1837 to 1901), she oversaw an Empire that stretched from India to the Americas, and from Africa to the Far East. So vast was the Empire, that the sun was always overhead on some part of it at any time. This was not a ceremonial role, she ruled with absolute power. She had nine children and 42 grandchildren.
