This page is a member of the Uncyclopedia Timeline. If an event isn't listed in the timeline, it most likely happened.

Represented here are the time periods from 1801 to 1900.

Rule Britannia.

The 19th century is when the world learned the words to Rule Britannia. It was the century that started off with Napoleon I annexing most of Europe to a French Empire and ended with a united Germany and the emergence of the USA as the money bags depository of the world.

It was the century of imperialism, industrialisation and the invention of cheap pornography. There was a move to incorporate more people into the business of ballot box stuffing, otherwise known as democracy. It was also a century that saw Queen Victoria have her name added from anything to train stations, waterfalls and a desolate part of Australia. Everyone became a Victorian. This was also the time when people of European descent considered themselves superior to everyone else, even if your civilisation (see China) pre-dated everyone. It no longer mattered. They were the wrong type of people.
