    Family 2 John Brown,   d. Yes, date unknown 
    Married
    • 4 may 2003
      Newly published diaries of politician and minister Lewis Harcourt claim that the Rev Norman Macleod, chaplain of Queen Victoria of Great Britain, made a death-bed confession that he had married Queen Victoria and her servant Mr John Brown in a secret ceremony and regretted it for the rest of his life.
      On February 17, 1885 Harcourt wrote: "Lady Posonby told the HS a few days ago that Miss Macleod declares that her brother Norman Macleod, confessed to her on his death bed that he had married the Queen to John Brown, and added that he had always bitterly regretted it." Although the diary doesn't give absolute proof that the marriage took place, the new material is said to be fascinating.
      For more than 130 years there have been speculations that Queen Victoria had an affair with Mr John Brown, and there were rumours at the time that the couple married, but never any evidence for the claim ever came out.

  • Notes 
    • Queen Victoria ruled from 1837 to 1901, the longest reigning monarch in British history.
      In 1837 Queen Victoria took the throne after the death of her uncle William IV. Due to her secluded childhood, she displayed a personality marked by strong prejudices and a willful stubbornness.
      Albert assisted in her royal duties. He introduced a strict decorum in court and made a point of straitlaced behavior. Albert also gave a more conservative tinge to Victoria’s politics. If Victoria was to insistently interject her opinions and make her views felt in the cabinet, it was only because of Albert’s teachings of hard work.
      Reflecting back into her childhood, Victoria was always prone to self pity. On 14-Dec-1861 Albert died from typhoid fever at Windsor Castle. Victoria remained in self-imposed seclusion for ten years. This genuine, but obsessive mourning kept her occupied for the rest of her life and played an important role in the evolution of what would become the Victorian mentality.
      After Albert’s death, Queen Victoria’s popularity declined as a result of her mourning and few public appearances. Her popularity was at its lowest by 1870, but it steadily increased thereafter until her death. In 1876 she was crowned empress of India by Disraeli. In 1887 Victoria’s golden jubilee was a grand national celebration. In the month of June, Victoria’s sixtieth year on the throne had come. Her diamond jubilee in 1897 was as extravagant as her golden jubilee in 1887.
      Queen Victoria died on 22-Jan-1901. She died after a brief illness and a rather long failure of her powers. Her eldest son Edward VII became king. The majority of her subjects had not known a time when Queen Victoria had not been reigning over them. The idea of losing her became a scarcely possible thought.
      Queen Victoria, Widow of Windsor, mother of the Empire, reigned for sixty-four years.

      Koningin van Groot Brittanie en Ierland 1837-1901, Keizerin van Indie 1877-1901.
      Der Herzog von Kent hinterließ, nachdem seine BrĂŒder die Könige Georg IV. und Wilhelm IV. kinderlos verstorben waren, nur eine Tochter, die spĂ€tere Königin Victoria. Da in Großbritannien noch heute die direkte Erbfolge gilt, wurde die Prinzessin Victoria von Kent im Jahre 1837 Königin. In Hannover konnten nur Frauen den Thron erben, wenn der mĂ€nnliche Stamm ausgestorben war. So erbte Victoria den Thron in England und ihr Onkel Ernst August den Thron in Hannover. Die 123jĂ€hrige Personalunion zwischen Großbritannien und Hannover löste sich damit 1837 auf. Mit 18 Jahren war Königin Victoria anfangs zu jung und unerfahren, um allein in London zu regieren, und schon in der Mitte ihres Lebens starb ihr Mann und Vetter Albert aus dem Hause Sachsen-Coburg-Gotha. Erst nach zehnjĂ€hrigem Kampf um innere und Ă€ußere Selbstbehauptung wurde Victoria zur wahren Patriarchin ihrer Familie und der Nation. Königin Victoria regierte lĂ€nger als jeder andere Herrscher. Ihre Herrschaft fĂŒhrte England zur mĂ€chtigsten Industriemacht der Welt und zum Zentrum des grĂ¶ĂŸten Imperiums. Als Victoria im Jahre 1901 verstarb, hinterließ sie 9 Kinder. Ihre gezielte Heiratspolitik verschaffte der königlichen Familie in England verwandtschafliche Beziehungen zu wichtigen Höfen in Deutschland und Europa. So wurde ihre Ă€lteste Tochter Vicky, im Jahre 1888 fĂŒr 99 Tage an der Seite ihres Mannes Kaiser Friedrich III., Deutsche Kaiserin. Königin Victoria`s Regierunszeit wird noch heute als das "Große Victoriansche Zeitalter" betrachtet.
