The Victoria Memorial in London was planned in 1901 and unveiled in 1911, though it was not completed until 1924. The monument features, among its design elements, six allegorical figures associated with the reign of Queen Victoria and carried on into the 21st century by her great-granddaughter, the reigning Queen Elizabeth II.
At the top of the monument is the most prominent of those statues, Winged Victory. Seated at her sides are the images of Constancy and Courage. Below these, you will find the images of Justice and Truth. Charity is the final of the six and features near the base of the monument.
