"God Save The Queen" was first used as the National Anthem of Great Britain when Queen Victoria ascended to the throne in 1837; previously it had been "God Save The King
The anthem begins:
"God Save our Gracious Queen
Long Live our Noble Queen"
Although it has the same melody as "God Save The King" with only the relevant minor alterations for gender, a fourth verse was added relating to parochial events, but this was soon abandoned. There were though various re-writes.
In 1892, Sydney G.R. Coles re-wrote it as "God Save Our Empress Queen"; it was also rewritten by Canon F.K. Harford.
Ten years earlier, H.H. Rajah Sir Sourindro Mohun Tagore had translated it into Sanskrit and Bengali; further translations were made into other languages of "the Queen's Empire."
