Was it smaller it was the richer you were or was it the opposite?

Fatness was a sign of wealth. The more money you had the more food you had.

Emperor Ferdinand I of Austria enjoyed studying heraldry.
He was fascinated with new technologies and farming.

King Henry VIII of England owned over 2,500 tapestries.
It was in Florence that Mary of Teck (Queen Consort of George V of Great Britain) began to develop her love for the fine arts and antiques.

Queen Anne of England's husband was Prince George.
Prince George's frequent exclamations of surprise earned him the nickname "Est-il possible?" ("Is it possible?)

In King Edward VII's opinion there was a suitable manner of dress for every conceivable occasion, even on board a royal yacht where Edward scolded a minister who wore knee-breeches instead of trousers.

At Lypiatt Manor House Princess Michael of Kent has planted a rose maze of her own design containing six thousand roses.

King Louis XIV of France loved flowers, particularly those with a strong perfume.
The gardener Le Bouteux was in search of rare essences to satisfy the wishes of the King.

King Charles II of England enjoyed tennis and a croquet-like game called pall mall.

King Charles II of England was the first monarch to have his own yacht.
The yacht was called The Royal Escape.

King Charles II of England was interested in science.
He had his own laboratory in Whitehall Palace.

When he was newly married, Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, enjoyed getting away from the formalities of the Palace.
His valet John Dean recalled that "the Prince enjoyed taking his coat off for such tasks as hanging pictures and moving chairs to wherever the Princess thought they would look best".
