I was unsure where to place this, as it’s a very broad question, but here goes… Do any photos exist of Nicholas II wearing his crown? Naturally I’v seen the distant photo of him underneath the ceremonial canopy, and understand the issue of photographs being taken during orthodox ceremonies, but I thought, Nicholas, who so often utilized photography as a P.R tool during his reign, would have had a portrait with him wearing the crown, whether it be a photo or a painting...
Secondly (this was a part I was unsure of where to post as it’s pretty broad) but I’m really interested in the “crowns” of the different monarchy’s . I was wondering if someone could post images of Europe’s different royal crowns. The English, Austrian, Russian and Danish crowns are quiet easy to find, but I’m constantly trying to find quality pictures of the different crowns of Italy, Germany Belgium, Greece, the Scandinavian kingdoms, etc etc etc.
If anyone has any images of the crowns (especially on the heads of their monarchs) I’d love to see them!
