Can't help much on those you mention. However:

Queen Victoria - 5ft maximum, and more than that round the waist in later life, according to a surviving pair of her knickers.

George V - 5ft 6

Kaiser Wilhelm II - 5ft 9

Nicholas II - 5ft 7

Christian X of Denmark  - 6ft 6

Peter the Great 6ft 7

Vittorio Emanuale of Italy - 5ft

Rich idea ! I wonder what was the exact hight - in cm - of kings of Scandinavia as Gustav V, Gustav VI Adolf, Christian X and Haakon VII, which seemed really bigs ?

I'm no good with centimetres! But you can convert as follows:

George V 5ft 6

1ft = 12 inches so 5ft 6 = 66 inches

66 inches x 2.54 = 167.6


Christian X was said to be the tallest king in the world in his lifetime. Haakon VII was, of course, his brother, and couldn't have been much shorter (certainly he was very long in the leg).

I think Irene was the most petite among the four, I guess she stands 5’5 (162.7 cm)
Victoria, I think is 5’6 (165.24 cm) Elisabeth is 5’7 (167.78 cm) and Alix, the tallest, is 5’8 (170.32) [now that I know Nicholas’s height is 5’7].


Amazing colored fotos  by the most wonderful Yelena Aleksandrovna. Endless thank you very much!

oh if you are right, than im so tall like Irene ^^

Its normal that the youngest are much higher than the eldest. you can see it from Victoria and Alix.
