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.

She was so melancholy, so unhappy, so sick and tired of life and took such a sad view of existence that I am sure the fact of being at rest is a blessed one for her…She was so kind and so simple and a straightforward, trustworthy character, courageous and independent. I was truly fond of her…she had kept the traces of her extraordinary loveliness: her smile, her figure, he walk and her carriage, even now though her face was lined and worn and she terribly thin. She had not a grey hair, the loads of chestnut plaits had become much thinner…She was always so nice and good and kind to me….She had strange eccentric habits, was shy, hated society.
