In photos: The life of Queen Elizabeth II

Since 1952, there have been seven Popes, 14 US Presidents and 15 British Prime Ministers. But there's only been one British monarch.

Queen Elizabeth II reigned for more than 70 years — longer than any British monarch in history.

She was 25 years old when she ascended to the throne.
