Royal Family



This is a picture of the Royal Family of Kenya in the early 1900's. At the time, Kenya was still under British governance, so I am not sure what role the Royal Family had.

  1. So, no lions ate you, or even chased you?
    How does it feel to be back in the good old USA and people drive on the correct side of the road?

  2. 26 above and about 1/2 inch of snow. The skiff of snow we got yesterday all disappeared.
    It is suppose to get to 36 today so I guess this mornings snow will go also.

    a 5 letter verifi on this one, my first comment had a seven letter.

  3. I was wrong about it being a 5 letter, the letters were so crowded the it looked like a diapo, but it turned into dialoo.
    but this one is for sure a five letter verifi.

  4. I suppose the man sitting down is the monarch and that perhaps those on the floor beside him are his wives. They have matching jewelry.
    All in all they are a gloomy looking group.
    32 and no snow but a biting wind.

  5. I think it is safe to assume the king presided over a tribe long before being subjugated into British 'rule'.

  6. Looks like a tough bunch.
    30 F and dry, but then it is dry most days. Drier than Texas even.
    7 letters.

  8. The British seemed to keep the existing leadership structure and them imposed themselves on top of it, and then taught them to drive on the wrong side of the road, their greatest legacy.

    Cool and dry here in Northern CA. Winter has been a no-show so far. Going to Reno for the weekend for New Years. Gonna make our fortune playing the penny slots!!!!

    5 letters this time, DADD. Not much of a post, but couldn't pass up a 5 letter one. Now if I can just get it right the first time.

  12. When the British took over, Kenya was a collection of 42 soverign tribal states each with its own rulers and forms of government. This is "A" royal family not "THE" royal family.
