Who says the Duke of york title is cursed? Do tell! I love medieval legends, especially when they involve crafty witches and revengeful curses.

I like history and the royals, although I don't know much about them in detail, but I have just joined the site and this is the first topic I have read, it's good stuff isn't it.

I will now go off and do some reading up on here but before I go, I have one question for my Daughters homework to help her with....

Who were the longest serving king and queen of England and when did they reign ?

Thanks for any help.

Welcome to the forum, Moroccooverland! The longest-serving Queen was Queen Victoria, who reigned from 1837 to 1901. The longest-serving king was George III, who reigned from 1760 to 1820, although there was a regency in effect from 1812 onward.

In order to not take threads off topic, you might want to ask questions like this in the regular British forum rather than one of the specialist ones.

Was the second longest reign for a Queen Regnant that of Elizabeth I (Tudor)? I am forgetting her accession year, but I believe she died in 1601?
I think elizabeth II might beat both her namesake and Victoria.

1558-1603. Elizabeth II has already reigned longer than Elizabeth I.

Well Elizabeth II only has 10 more years to go before she beats Victoria's record of 63 years. I don't think she'll beat the record for longest reigning European monarch, 74 years by Louis XIV.
