Standing, from left to right: King Haakon VII of Norway, Tsar Ferdinand of the Bulgarians, King Manuel II of Portugal and the Algarves, Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany and King of Prussia, King George I of the Hellenes and King Albert I of the Belgians. Seated, from left to right: King Alfonso XIII of Spain, King George V of the United Kingdom and King Frederick VIII of Denmark.
I’m pretty sure King George V and the Tsar are cousins

Ahhh how nice is to be born into power and wealth…..
Is there a reason nobody looks at the camera?
Has no one noticed the amount of power those mustaches have?
