This is quite simply a list of royalties of Europe who were alive at any time between 1860 and 1918. Males and females are listed in separate posts, and the blog begins at the end of the alphabet so that eventually, when it is completed, it will read in alphabetical order. Where there are numerous royalties with the same first name, they are listed chronologically.
Occasional quotations or snippets of information about the royalties are are also included.
Where the Christian name begins with Marie or Maria, the person is often listed under the second part of her name (e.g. Marie Antoinette - had she lived in this period - would be listed under 'A' with 'Marie' written in brackets after Antoinette).
As the information is gathered from numerous sources, there might be irregularity of spelling the name according to the Anglicised, Germanic, French etc. etc. spelling. All the Karls/Carls/Charles for example are listed together.
As this is a work in progress, some of the dates etc. will be filled in later.

As well as the list of names etc. various other lists will be included. Please use the search function to find specific people.

I do not think her pretty - she has not a fine figure but a passable one. She has a very flat, narrow and upright forehead which may to be sure look so from the way in which she is coiffĂ©e, but still a fine forehead is a great thing. she has an incipient twitching in her eyes, like Heinrich - and her teeth are nearly all spoilt…she will never have anything graceful in her deportment…She has a very deep voice and rather a gruff abrupt way of speaking, frowning when she speaks, partly to conceal her shyness and partly to conceal her eyes which are perpetually twitching while she is talking. Her nose is very pretty and has a bent shape and finely cut nostrils. Her eyes are small and insignificant and she has not much expression in her face. Whether she is clever or not, I have not the slightest idea…One the whole I should say she was nice-looking but nothing particular.” (Crown Princess Victoria of Prussia)

“...the greatest beauty and invariably admired..” (Crown Princess Victoria of Prussia)

“Having heard that she was a great beauty, I was all eagerness to see her but I could not reconcile myself to this pale-faced, pale-lipped, Grecian nosed woman with the too-small bust and too-long legs. These proportions can occasionally be beautiful, but in her case, the hips being enormous, there was something about her figure which made you feel positively uncomfortable….[She lived] in a small circle of rules, prejudices and conventions which she considered perfection…hedged in by her Church, nursing her delicate health, everybody caring for her, serving her, spoiling her.” (Marie of Roumania)
