Checkout: The Records Broken by Queen Elizabeth II of England

Time they say, waits for no one. There's time to be born, grow and so on and so forth. Do you know that Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, the Queen of England has spent 68 years as the Monarch of England? With this the Queen has broken so many records.

* She is the 4th Longest Serving Queen/King in World's History.

* She Became the longest Serving (Reigning) Monarch in British history over taking her Great-grand mother, Queen Victoria in September 2015.

The Monarch was born on 21 April 1926, meaning she is 94 years of age. She was born in Mayfair, London, United Kingdom.

Her reign began on 6 February 1952 after the death of her beloved father King George VI.

According to Wikipedia, Queen Elizabeth II became the longest-reigning British monarch on 9 September 2015 when she surpassed the reign of her great-great-grandmother Victoria. On 6 February 2017 she became the first British monarch to celebrate a Sapphire Jubilee, commemorating 65 years on the throne.

The Queen has become the fourth longest-serving monarch today, surpassing Mayan ruler Pakal the Great who ruled around the area of Mexico to present day Hunduras.

On February 6 2020, Her Majesty, 94, has been on the throne for 68 years and almost 6 months in August 2020 while K'inich Janaab Pakal ruled the Maya city state of Palenque for 68 years and 33 days before his death in 683AD.

The longest-reigning monarchs 

1. Louis XIV of France (reigned from 14 May 1643 to 1 September 1715)

2. Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand (reigned from 9 June 1946 to 13 October 2016)

3. Johann II of Liechtenstein (reigned from 12 November 1858 to 11 February 1929)

4. Queen Elizabeth II (reigned from 6 February 1952)  

"Pakal the Great is believed by historians to have ascended to the throne at the age of 12- years old and during his rule managed to expand Palenque’s power in the western Maya states."

"The Mayan civilisation reached its peak between 250 and 900 AD, when it ruled large swathes of what is now southern Mexico, Guatemala, Belize and Honduras. "

Meanwhile, just ahead of the British monarch is Johann II of Liechtenstein, who ruled from 1858 and 1929.
