Between 1837 and 1919 there were three Periods that

marked the history of the world:


The Victorian Era: The Queen Victoria (Alexandrina Victoria)

reigned England from 1837 to 1901. Her reign of 63 years and 7

months is longer than that of any other British monarch and the

longest of any female monarch in history.


The famous British novelist Charles Dickens (1812-1870) is

considered the greatest of this brilliant literature Period.

Other successful writer of this Era was Jules Verne, who is especially

remembered today as a visionary.


The world’s most famous naturalist Charles Darwin published

'On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection' in 1859.

The studies of Louis Pasteur in 1879 conduced to discover the

cholera vaccine.


Karl Benz built the world's first practical automobile powered by

an internal-combustion in 1885.


Jack "The Ripper" was the dark side of the Victorian Era, his murders

occurred in the East End of London in 1888.


The famous London detective Sherlock Holmes was a fictional

character created by the British author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. He

wrote his S.H. novels within the late Victorian and the Edwardian Eras.


The woman beauty model (popularly known as “Gibson Girl”) from

the "Pin-Up Lady" drawings of Charles Dana Gibson (born in USA in

1867, son of a Civil War lieutenant) also belongs to this Era, and was

a social revolution representing the ideal femininity to be aspired

by women and wished by men.


The Gothic culture and the Steampunk subculture (inspired in the new

steam- powered machines) developed during the Victorian Era.


The Gothic literature’s genre Gothic Fiction (also known as

Gothic Horror) was originated in England in the late half of the 18th

century, but it had its maximum success in the 19th within the

Victorian Era. Best know samples are Frankenstein written by the

English Mary Shelley, some works of the American Edgar Allan Poe,

and the famous human vampire Count Dracula novel written in 1897 by

the Irish author Bram Stoker which tells the story of Dracula's attempt

to move from Transylvania to England to find new blood.


The Burlesque is a genre of theatrical entertainment that was very

popular in Victorian England on the 19th century. The Victorian

Burlesque was derived from the pantomime and may be considered

an extension of its introductory section with the addition of gags

and 'turns'.



The Civil War: Occurred in America from 1861 to 1865, within the

Victorian Era.

Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of the United States was born

in 1809. He led the States through the Civil War, abolishing slavery

and strengthening the federal government. Lincoln was

assassinated by a Confederate sympathizer in 1865, and the same

year the CW ended.

It is also known as "War of Secession" or "War between The States".



The Edwardian Era: In 1901, after Victoria's death, her son

Edward was the King of the UK from 1901 to 1910.

His Era is historically extended until 1919 to include great events

as the sinking of the TITANIC, the World War 1, and the signing of

the Treaty of Versailles which set the end of the WW1.
