Queen Victoria’s 1892 throne speech marks the second time in British history when the monarch’s wishes led to a vote of no confidence. Victoria retained her support for the Marquess of Salisbury as prime minister. However, following the speech, the Parliament voted against the queen’s wishes in favor of another candidate. Salisbury honorably resigned, and William Ewart Gladstone took his place.
