The Queen's got a long way to go

The new Queen meets with
President Harry Truman
I'm not sure whether it would be appropriate for me, as an American, to bow to Queen Elizabeth II on the occasion of her 60th anniversary jubilee, but I'll at least tip my hat to her. Sixty years in office... that has to be some kind of record, right?

Actually, if you check out Wikipedia's list of longest reigning monarchs, she doesn't even crack the top fifty, and that's just the list of verifiable ones. Sobhuza II of Swaziland served 82 years. The Egyptian pharaoh Pepi II allegedly served 94 years. Now, obviously it helps to have taken the throne as a child, and Elizabeth was already 25 when she became queen. That'll make it tough to crack the top tier without resorting to cryogenics.
