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.

To be intimate with her, one must see much of her; she never makes advances of her own and has nothing overflowing or warm or tender about her relations with others and yet she is kind and good and affectionate, and one cannot be in the house with her without loving her. She is never maussade or out of temper or cross or impatient; her household are very fond of her.” (Crown Princess Victoria of Prussia)

“She is the sweetest girl who ever lived, and full of life and spirits…She has always been strong and healthy as possible and has never ailed anything in her life except having the measles…I own Princess A. of Holstein is the only one of these princesses for whom I feel portée – it would be dreadful if this pearl went to the horrid Russians.” (Queen Victoria)

“She was so jealous of the English Royal Family that she never asked any of her English sisters-in-law to Sandringham, whereas she would fill the place with her Danish relations.” (Alexander of Battenberg)

“She is 51 years old but looks 30. She is marvellously slim and her bright kind smile creates an enchanting impression.” (Konstantin Konstantinovich)
