The old images – photographs, engravings etc – are the most suggestive descriptions for a historic epoch, with an excellent visual impact. For this reason I choose to post on my blog many different images showing European royals in various moments of their life. Here is one such example showing the founder of the Romanian dynasty, Prince Karl Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen, shortly after he arrived in his adoptive country in May 1866. This is one one of his earliest images in a French newspaper,  L’Univers Illustre (July 1866).
