In essence, the Victorian period was so called because it happened during the reign of Queen Victoria, which was from 1837 until her death in 1901. She was Britain’s second-longest reigning monarch, surpassed only by Queen Elizabeth II.
This era was marked by great progress and turmoil. On one hand, it introduced the world’s first Industrial Revolution, produced the likes of Charles Dickens and Florence Nightingale, and welcomed the first modern railroad line. On the other hand, it was also the time of the Irish Potato Famine, the Crimean War, and the onslaught of Jack the Ripper throughout the streets of London.
Indeed, the Victorian period was charming and chaotic, turbulent but exciting. Invoke similar vibes to your projects when you use these delightful Victorian fonts.
