1. India was then part of the British Empire in 1877. At that time, Queen Victoria was titled Empress of India. When she died in 1901, her son, Edward VII, became Emperor of India. This title continued until India became independant from the UK on 15 Aug 1947.

Someone could be calling Victoria Queen of India from a blending of her United Kingdom title and her Indian title. That's all that I can think of, but of course I could be wrong.
2. All names that come after the first given name and before the family name are called middle names. It's the person's choice what ones, if any, they use.
