Despite her regal and imposing aura, the monarch was actually only five feet tall. This makes her four inches shorter than Elizabeth II, who is roughly 5’4. To put this into perspective, people were roughly two inches shorter on average in the 18th-19th centuries than they are now, so the average height for a man in Victorian times would have been somewhere around 5’6~ and the average height for a woman would have been 5’1~, putting the old Queen at just about 1 inch below average height for a woman of her times!
She was only five feet tall! (2/20)
