Queen Elizabeth II Is Now The Second-Longest Reigning Monarch In History

The BBC reports that if Her Majesty is still reigning in May 2024 she will overtake Louis XIV as the world’s longest-reigning monarch of a sovereign state.

In 2015, Queen Elizabeth became the longest-reigning British monarch, overtaking a record previously set by Queen Victoria.

As of June 13, Her Majesty has been on the throne for 70 years and 127 days. The longest-reigning monarch was Louis XIV of France, who became king at the age of 4 and ruled for 72 years and 110 days from 1643 to 1715 — though he really started to rule in 1661 when he was in his 20s.   

The Queen, 96, succeeded to the throne at the age of 25 upon the death of her father, King George VI, on February 6, 1952, and was crowned a year later.
