  3. Nate,
    You are up early. You are wrong in your guess, but you are up early. Perhaps you should go back and get a little more rest, and try again in a few hours. HAAA HAAAAA HA.

  7. Nate, you need to sleep in just a wee bit longer....I almost had this one! That's okay though, it's great you took care of PJM so quickly!

  8. You're kidding! I thought Nate had it for sure! Okay, my second guess was going to be Emperor Franz Joseph of Austria and his lovely wife Elizabeth of Bavaria....

  11. Well she's the spitting image of Queen Victoria in a side by side comparison. She must be related.

  12. It is amazing how quickly everyone has given up.

  13. Ferdinand I of Romania.with his wife Princess Marie of Edinburgh

  14. Finally, someone gives it a try.

    A weak, feeble, and WRONG try, but a try nonetheless.

    Notice how everyone is always whining that I dont do a non-US mystery person and the first time I do you all fold?

  15. I have an uneasy feeling Nate knows who it is, but is just giving everyone else a chance. That is why I am not taunting him.

    Ray in the UK on the other hand. . . He does not have a clue. He is quivering in his boots that as the UK representative in this contest, he letting the entire empire down. What a sad state of affairs.

  16. Prince August Wilhelm Heinrich Günther with his wife Augusta Victoria of Schleswig-Holstein.

  17. Yawn. I grow tired of this game. Everyone just guesses. No one does research, no not one. Guesses, that is all I see.

    Ray, you are wrong, again.

  18. Edward, Prince of Wales and Alexandra, Princess of Denmark.

  19. Finally, we have a winner.

    Why did it take you so long Ray, I thought you would get this in two minutes. I thought it would be like I had put up a picture of Abraham Lincoln in the US.

    Edward, Prince of Wales and Alexandra, Princess of Denmark.

    So how did you figure it out?

  20. I could say what I think
    of the empire, but you
    wouldn't print it.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Ferdinand Maximilian Joseph, Emporer of Mexico, and his wife, Charlotte (played by Bette Davis) of Belgium

  22. Anon,
    No, Ray had it right, it was:

    Edward, Prince of Wales and Alexandra, Princess of Denmark.

  23. Excellent Ray of UK! Thank you, now I can get some housework done!

  24. It's funny how a archetypal images work in the brain. I had a hard time getting past that this had to be Prince Albert. When I was told I was wrong, I was thinking, that this had to be a Knight of the Garter (based on his insignia), but very young, so obviously royalty. I thought it might be Edward VII, but since he came to the throne later, I kept picturing him with a full beard, less hair, and larger. I even googled "young Edward VII" and there was a photo of a similar looking fellow, but clean shaven, so I dismissed him. I started thinking that this must be Prince Albert with someone he was escorting, perhaps a relative of Victoria.

    Well played, Ray!

  25. I was so sure that it was
    Prince Albert, although
    it doesn't really look like
    Victoria, I went for them.
    I recognized the insignia on
    his tunic and knew it was
    English.
    I then googled prince and
    princesses and got lucky.

  26. WOW.. Good job. It's not even 8:00 here and there were already 24 comments and of course someone had guessed. That was so fast. Good job Ray.

  27. The picture came from my Civil War WEB site, and you can see the picture and story here.

    http://www.sonofthesouth.net/leefoundation/civil-war/1863/april/prince-princess-wales.htm

    I think the heir to the throne is always the Prince of Wales, so if you googled that this picture would have shown up on the first couple of pages.
