Located at the center of Queen’s Gardens at Buckingham Palace, in London, stands the Victoria Memorial, dedicated to Queen Victoria, who reigned from 1837 to 1901. The Queen’s two senior grandsons, George V and Wilheim II of Germany, dedicated the 25 meter (82 feet) tall memorial in 1911, one decade after her death.
Below the seated queen it reads: “Victoria, Regina Imperatrix” (Victoria, Queen and Emperor). The other three sides feature statues of Charity, the Angel of Justice, and the Angel of Truth. Atop the memorial is a gilded statue of Victory.
A very worthy memorial.
