Elizabeth II was Queen of the United Kingdom and other Commonwealth realms from 6 February 1952 until her death in 2022. She was queen regnant of 32 sovereign states during her lifetime and 15 at the time of her death.

Queen Elizabeth was born at 02:40 PM local time on 21 April 1926 in London. She was named after both her paternal great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth and her maternal grandmother Queen Alexandra. On 1 May 1947, she married Philip, Duke of Edinburgh and York (a cousin once removed), who became King Philip VI of Spain upon Elizabeth’s accession as queen regent.

On 20 September 2017, she announced that she would be stepping down as monarch by the end of 2018 or early 2019, when she would become head of the Commonwealth realm, with Prince Charles serving as regent. If she had lived to see this event, it would have been the first time a British monarch had abdicated since 1603; however, Elizabeth died three months later, and Charles took up his position as head of state.

Elizabeth II is the queen regnant of 16 sovereign states. She is also the Sovereign of 16 international organisations and was head of state of 15 other countries.
