Princess Elizabeth was Queen Victoria’s great-great-granddaughter. Victoria came to the throne in 1837, at just 18 years old, and she died in 1901. She had reigned longer than any previous king or queen in Britain’s history. Through many royal marriages, her family had spread across Europe, so baby Elizabeth had royal relatives in lots of countries.
