May 20, 1910
The Nine Sovereigns at Windsor for the funeral of King Edward VII.
The funeral was the largest gathering of European royalty ever to take place, with representatives of 70 states, and the last before many royal families were deposed in the First World War and its aftermath.





Standing - from left to right:
King Haakon VII of Norway, Tsar Ferdinand of Bulgaria, King Manuel II of Portugal, Kaiser Wilhelm II of the German Empire, King George I of Greece, King Albert I of Belgium.

Seated - from left to right:
King Alfonso XIII of Spain, King-Emperor George V of the United Kingdom, King Frederick VIII of Denmark.






This is probably the only photograph of nine reigning kings ever taken.

George was the nephew of Frederick VIII of Denmark.  Frederick and George of Greece were brothers.  This photo was in a lot of royalty books pre-internet.

Another great gathering of royals, and really, I think the biggest pre-1914, was the wedding of Victoria Louise of Prussia with EA of Hannover, in 1913.

This reads as if you are saying Nicholas II was the first cousin of Wilhelm II - he wasn't. He was George V's first cousin (their mothers were sisters, both daughters of Christian IX of Denmark) but only George V was a first cousin of Wilhelm II (George's father and Wilhelm's mother were brother and sister, both children of Queen Victoria).

Nicholas' wife, Alexandra, was a first cousin of both George and Wilhelm as her mother was another sister (daughter of Queen Victoria).
