I came across this great photo earlier, unfortunately it only has the caption '9 Kings at Windsor Castle, May 20, 1910'. Can anyone name them, aside from the obvious contender centre front? So far I've had no luck finding who is who.

This lot all showed up for the funeral of Edward VII on May 20th, 1910:


The German Emperor;

The King of the Hellenes;

The King of Spain;

The King of Norway;

The King of Denmark;

The King of Portugal;

The Tsar of Bulgaria;

The King of the Belgians.

But I haven't a clue who's actually who (although that looks like Kaiser Bill standing behind George V).

It was a pretty impressive gathering, Teddy's funeral - there were also lots of Serene Highnesses, Royal Highnesses and Imperial Highnesses, plus a Grand Ducal Highness or two. Not many of them left though by 1918, I think.

Thanks Temp, I hadn't thought of the funeral when of course it would have been for all of them to be together.

And all so self assured and secure in their positions, little did they know that it was the end of an era and indeed, the end for many, as you say.
