Military Appointment signed: "Victoria Reg". 1 pages, 8x12¾, 1 sheet folded, front and verso, 2¾-inch diameter embossed seal. Windsor, England. March 13, 1867. The Queen appointed Capt. Rowley Lambert, Esq. of the Royal Navy to be an ordinary member Military division of "Our said Most Honorable Order of the Bath". This document made Lambert a third-class member, also known as a Companion. QUEEN VICTORIA (1819-1901), the last member of the House of Hanover to reign as a British monarch, ruled the United Kingdom longer than any other monarch before or since (1837-1901). Her 63-year reign endeared her to her subjects, and she gave her name to an era, the Victorian Age. Her husband, Prince Albert, an able political figure himself, was the Queen's close advisor until his death in 1861. The royal pair had nine children - four sons and five daughters. Victoria's reign was celebrated with two jubilees, honoring her 50 and 60 years on the throne. Henry John Temple, 3rd Viscount PALMERSTON (1784-1865), popularly known as Lord Palmerston, was Britain's Secretary of State for War (1809-1828), Foreign Secretary (1830-1834, 1835-1841, 1846-1851) and Prime Minister (1855-1858, 1859-1865), holding office almost continuously for nearly half a century from 1807 until his death. Because he held an Irish peerage rather than an English one, he was able to sit in the House of Commons. Disliked by Queen Victoria, and often abrasive in dealing with foreign governments - he held a lifelong antipathy to the United States - Palmerston was nevertheless effective in promoting British interests. Lightly spotted. Toned at upper and lower portion. Folds and creased (not near signature). Otherwise in fine condition.
