Queen Elizabeth II Becomes Second-Longest Serving Monarch in History!

The Queen of England has become the second-longest serving monarch in history.

As of Monday, June 13, she will be on the throne for 70 years and 127 days, second only to Louis XIV of France who became king at the age of four.

She overtakes Thailand’s King Bhumibol Adulyadej, who died in 2016, having equaled his reign on Sunday, June 12.

She had officially reached 70 years of rule on 6 February, and last weekend, the 96-year-old’s Platinum Jubilee was marked with four days of celebrations across the UK.

If the Queen is still ruling in May 2024 she would take the title of the longest-reigning modern monarch.

Louis XIV’s reign of 72 years and 110 days was from 1643 to 1715. But he only started to rule personally in his 20s, in 1661.

The Queen became monarch at the age of 25, following the death of her father in the early hours of 6 February 1952.

In September 2015, she became the longest-reigning British monarch when she surpassed the reign of her great-great grandmother Queen Victoria.

Her other records include being the oldest reigning queen ever and the oldest British monarch ever.
