The death of Queen Victoria on January 22, 1901, ends an era in which most of her British subjects know no other monarch. Her 63-year reign, the longest in British history, saw the growth of an empire on which the sun never set. Victoria restored dignity to the English monarchy and ensured its survival as a ceremonial political institution. Born in 1819, she came to the throne after the death of her uncle, King William IV, in 1837.

That was the same year when Giuseppe Verdi, the giant of Opera, died. It is indeed the end of an era dubbed Romantic and the beginning of one which while still indebted to Romanticism has forged a dubious legacy under the misguided rule of logical positivism and scientism which has split Western culture in two. Will the sun set on Western culture. The answer is still blowing in the wind.
