How long does a queen last?

This is actually quite amazing! (However, this list does not include Lyndon B Johnson, who was President between Nixon and Kennedy.) The Queen has been consistent through 12 of our Presidents - so far! And there were 3 other Presidents between the year she was born (1926) and the year she became Queen. I think she really does run on Duracell!
