Who is the second-longest reigning monarch in the UK?

Queen Victoria lived an exceptionally long time (81 years) considering the era, and her reign as monarch of the British Empire was equally impressive: 63 years, 216 days. Queen Elizabeth II — Britain’s current and longest-running monarch — only surpassed Victoria’s record on September 9, 2015.

As you might expect, both women took the crown at a young age; Elizabeth II at age 25 and Victoria at just 18. Coming in third? King George III, who lasted 59 years and 96 days, finishing his reign when Victoria was just a baby (King George was her grandfather).
