On January 22nd, in 1901, Queen Victoria passed away at Osborne House

She was succeeded on the throne by her eldest son, Prince Albert Edward, who would reign as Edward VII. He had been at her deathbed along with her oldest grandson, Wilhelm II.

She was 81 years old, and had been Queen for 63 years, 216 days, giving her name to an era and setting a record for the longest reigning British Monarch which still stands today.

A cat organ or cat piano (Katzenklavier in German) is a conjectural musical instrument which consists of a line of cats fixed in place with their tails stretched out underneath a keyboard so that cats cry out in pain when a key is pressed. The cats would be arranged according to the natural tone of their voices.
