The Ontario Legislative Building is located in Queen’s Park. The tree-lined, beautifully landscaped greenspace was inaugurated in 1860 by Albert Edward, the Prince of Wales. He became King Edward VII in 1901 after the death of his mother, Queen Victoria. She reigned the United Kingdom for 63 years (1837-1901). This sculpture of the queen was created in 1870 by Mario Raggi and then moved to Queen’s Park in 1870. She is portrayed holding an orb and scepter, symbols of her sovereignty.
