Thanks PeDe! It's amazing how much King George V and his first cousin Tsar Nicholas II (their mothers - Queen Alexandra of the United Kingdom and Empress Maria Fyodorovna of Russia - were sisters) resemble each other. Wow, that coupled cousin site is very interesting. Even for their times, I've always found the uncle/nice marriages more disturbing than the cousin coupling.
You are welcome, Bystander, I find it amazing as well, because naturally first cousins do not have to look alike, but George and Nicholas look like twins in some pics.
I find it hilarous, what the writer of the blog mentions: The three cousins bore a striking resemblance to each other, and occasionally posed for portraits in each otherís uniforms.
In the first photo, Nicky and George pose in their own uniforms
In the second picture, Willy wears Nickyís Russian Imperial attire and Nicky wears Willyís smashing uniform with its spiked helmet.
Wilhelm II biographie:
Wilhelm was born on 27 January 1859 in Berlin to Prince Frederick William of Prussia (the future Frederick III) and his wife, Victoria, Princess Royal of England. He was the first grandchild of Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom, placing him sixth in the British line of succession. More importantly, as the son of the Crown Prince of Prussia, Wilhelm was (from 1861) the second in the line of succession to Prussia, and also, after 1871, to the German Empire, which, according to the constitution of the German Empire, was ruled by the Prussian King. As with most Victorian era royalty, he was related to many of Europe's royal families. He was the first cousin of George V and Maud of Wales.
