Victorian & Historic Royalty

For British Victorian periodicals, royalty was always a subject of interest. Magazines carried articles on the royal family, their dwellings and even their dogs. Contemporary royalty in other countries was also a common topic (not surprisingly, since, quite probably, they might be related....) Also popular were articles on royals of the past -- so we've gathered articles on royalty from all periods and countries here!
