Elizabeth II surpasses Victoria as Britain's longest reigning monarch

As of September 9, 2015 (Cirno Day, go fig), Queen Elizabeth II surpassed Victoria as the longest reigning British monarch, having held the throne for approximately 63 years and 7 months or 23,226 days to be exact.

Some things to put into perspective...

When QE2 was crowned Queen on February 6, 1952...
* The eldest Beatle, Ringo Starr, was 11.
* Future Presidents Clinton and George W. Bush were 5. Obama would be born over nine years later.
* The future Pope John Paul II was not even a Bishop yet, but still a priest in Poland.
* The average home cost $16,800, A new Ford would cost, at most, $2300. Gas was 20 cents per gallon.
* The first Kentucky Fried Chicken would open about 6 months later.
* MAD Magazine and The Today Show would debut that year.

She's far from being the longest running monarch...

So Charles is still Prince, eh ? Soon, he will be an old man before he can become a King . He remind me of a character from the gag manga Nintama Rantarou: a 70 years old ""young master" - Because his father - a 90 years old castle lord refuse to step down and let his son succeed him

That reminds me. Is the gameplay of Crusader Kings 2 similar to Crusader Kings 1?
I tried the latter and didn't understand how to play the game.

I never played CK1 so I couldn't tell you. I imagine it wouldn't be too different, just more refined. Saying that though CK2 can be a bit hard to get into, best to start off as one of the Irish dukes or something and aim for making Kingdom of Ireland, then invade Scottland and England. Bring France, Spain or the HRE. Good times.

She will reign for a few more years for sure.

And she would sure make Saber-san proud. xD
