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.

“[He] was possessed of a unique personality and of a character that remained to me, to the very day of his death, incomprehensible….He was tall…he had broad shoulders above a body excessively thin. He wore a small beard closely trimmed. His hair, which was thick, was cut short and so brushed as to stand up briskly all over his head. In characteristic posture he stood erect, head up, chest out; his elbows would be drawn closely in towards his sides, and with the fingers of one hand he toyed with a jewelled ring he habitually wore on the little finger of the other. When he was vexed or surly, his lips would be compressed to one crisp straight line and his eyes became little hard points of light. Cold, inflexible, the world called him, and not without cause, but towards Dmitri and me he displayed a tenderness almost feminine. Despite which, he demanded of us, as of all his household or following, exact and immediate obedience….Introspective, essentially diffident, his true spirit imprisoned with him, he hid private impulses of exceeding sensitiveness…Those few who knew him well were deeply devoted to him, but even his intimates feared him, and Dmitri [her brother] and I feared him too.” (His ward and niece, Maria Pavlovna the Younger)

“Serge will captivate you when you know him I am sure. There is something quiet and gentle, in fact rather melancholy about him, and his appearance and manners have something high bred and distingu√© which one misses in some of his brothers.” (Empress Frederick)

“I am glad to hear Serge speaks so nicely of me. I think we shall get on very well, though he is a Russian and carries off my grandchild…But he looks so thin and delicate in his photographs that I am quite alarmed at it. It’s a very thoughtful, nice countenance.” (Queen Victoria)
