Oval blue jasper medallion with white relief profile portrait of Queen Victoria (1819-1901) facing left. Queen of Great Britain and Ireland, Empress of India; only child of the Duke Of Kent and Victoria Maria Louisa of Saxe Coburg; born at Kensington Palace, 1819. She was crowned in 1838, and in 1840 married Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha by whom she had nine children. Victoria had strong likes and dislikes among the politicians of the day, and although she was, on the whole, a constitutional sovereign, she retained a keen appreciation of her own powers.
