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 distinguĂ© 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)

He is very shy and does not talk readily of his own accord - but he pays great attention to what is said…and is decidedly clever and intelligent...He speaks all languages well; his forehead, eyes and nose are good indeed.

He looks melancholy and said to me himself he had never known a home - and never has had since his poor brother Maurice died, a relation near him, I mean to live with…Poor young man he is much to be pitied and we would wish to be of use to him...He shuts himself up and does not go out in society.” (Queen Victoria)

“Is a dear, interesting, charming boy – clever, amusing, engaging – it is impossible not to spoil him a little. He is growing so handsome and his large eyes have now and then a dreamy expression and then again they sparkle with fun and delight. He too has his failings; he is inclined to be selfish, domineering and proud., but I must say they, too, are not his own fault as they have been hitherto more encouraged than checked.” (His mother, future Empress Frederick)

That very foolish, undutiful and – I must add – unfeeling boy I have no patience with and I wish he could get a good ‘skelping’ (as the Scotch say.)” (Queen Victoria)

“Is very shy by nature and that often makes him look proud....Gives much promise. The poor arm is no better, and Willy begins to feel being behind much smaller boys in every exercise of the body. He cannot run fast because he has no balance, nor ride, nor climb, nor cut his food etc. I wonder he is good tempered about it.” (He suffered from a ‘withered arm’, which did not grow and was the cause of much frustration to him.) (His mother)

"After being with [him] for some time one began to see that his brilliance was mostly superficial and all his conversation studied beforehand. It seemed to me that he anticipated what subjects of conversation would crop up and then got his staff to look up statistics, which he afterwards brought out in conversation, with the result that people were astounded at his knowledge. He was particularly good at committing statistics to memory…Quite apart from the superficial acting. The Emperor had great fascination as a conversationalist, as he was always so keen and interested. He practically stood on one’s feet, glaring into one’s eyes and giving grunts of approval, which acted as a spur.” (Frederick Ponsonby)

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 portĂ©e – 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)
