England's Queen Elizabeth II may just be that person. Of course, referring to a monarch as an employee is a bit of a stretch. But most would agree that she has led a life of service to the Empire and few would criticize her level of dedication.

Queen Victoria ruled until her death in 1901 for a total of 63 years, seven months and two days.
