So, would Queen Vicky count for this sometime after 1837? I mean, she was the monarch of the world's largest empire.
She probably would, but there's still a one year gap there :D I'd like to compile an uninterrupted timeline. Something like(following Bottrall's example): Napoleon - Goethe - XXXX - XXXX - ... - XXXXX(until 1914).

Well, 1905 really.

I'd say it did have some quite far reaching political consequences.
