Franklin Heirloom Porcelain Doll Queen Victoria of England
On 24 May 1837 Victoria turned 18, and the regency was avoided. On 20 June 1837, Victoria was awakened by her mother to find that William IV had died from heart failure at the age of 71. In her diary Victoria wrote, "I was awoke at 6 o'clock by Mama ...who told me the Archbishop of Canterbury and Lord Conyngham were here and wished to see me. I got out of bed and went into my sitting-room (only in my dressing gown) and alone, and saw them. Lord Conyngham then acquainted me that my poor Uncle, the King, was no more, and had expired at 12 minutes past 2 this morning, and consequently that I am Queen..." Victoria was now Queen of the United Kingdom. Her coronation took place on 28 June 1838, and she became the first Monarch to take up residence at Buckingham Palace.
