In your face, Edward Longshanks.

England's Queen Elizabeth II became the longest ever reigning monarch in the country, Sept. 9, according to the BBC.

At about 17:30 BST the Queen will have reigned for 23,226 days, 16 hours and approximately 30 minutes - 63 years and seven months.

[Prime Minister] David Cameron said the service she had given was "truly humbling".

We don't go much in for all the monarchy malarky over here in the States, in fact, we're pretty sure there was a war over it at some point or another. Still, 63 years is a very long time to hold any job, let alone the English throne.

The previous holder of the prestigious record was Queen Elizabeth II's great-great-grandmother, Queen Victoria.

Good job, queen.

Step aside vampires, it's time for brooding romance in a new setting: 16th Century European Aristocracy. The CW's Reign (premiering October, 17th) will follow Mary, Queen of Scots during her time in France while betrothed to Prince Francis (Tony Regbo). But, there's a catch, in the form of Torrance Coombs as Bash, the brooding bastard, who's caught her eye. Even better than the prospect of a new sizzling love triangle, Adelaide Kane who plays Mary, is a fan of our very own I Can Has Cheezburger. Cheers, Adelaide, we can't wait to cheer you on Oct 17th. And don't worry, nothing bad ever happened to Mary Stuart.

Check out the extended trailer.
