Alexia Sinclair’s The Royal Dozen

Posted on

A Sneak Peak into the Royal Dozen

Last week I posted images from Alexia Sinclair’s The Regal Twelve series, which presented twelve European monarchs who have ruled supreme and whose lives span over two millennia.

Today it’s time for the boys and I found them a little more challenging.

This is The Royal Dozen.

Here’s 12 portraits of princes, warlords, dandies and diplomats, with their selection was based on their contrasts in leadership, their flamboyancies and their enduring influence upon society.

Answers will feature below.

Let’s hear it for the boys!

  2. These are stunning, but I actually did much worse than with the ladies! Guess history isn’t my speciality 😉

  3. In spite of loving history, I’m not a expert either!!! There is always so much to learn/know… so many cultures and I love it!!! 😉

  4. Interesting! Again, I missed a couple. Didn’t figure on the Marquis de Sade being in this group. I had trouble placing Lorenzo il Magnifico, too, I think because his primary emblems are missing. What a group!

    • LOL I was thinking the same about de Sade. Where are the poor nude ladies? He doesn’t seem quite like himself without them 😉
      BTW, I didn’t miss a few. I got a few. Big difference 🙂
