Who would you choose to add to a list of Great Victorians? Over a period of 64 years there are many to choose from.
This list is just my choice of prominent Victorians from all the many possibilities. The Victorian age was such a time of innovation and change, and spanning 64 years, provided a great number of people to select from. I have included those born before the Victorian era, and those who died afterwards: the main selection criteria being that they lived part of their life between 1837 and 1901. I have also generally excluded nationalities other than British unless they were active for some period in the UK. The list is far from complete and will be added to as time goes on, but if you have any burning nominations, then drop an email.
