Man in the Iron Mask - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Legend says that he was the older or the twin brother of King Louis XIV of France, and he spent all his life in jail, wearing an iron mask, avoiding him to be recognized!
Leonardo DiCaprio played the role of the Man in the Iron Mask!!!

I find Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Al Maktoum one of the saddest royals. He does have empty & sad eyes. His eyes are so expressive too. Even when he's faking his smile, we can know what he feels through his eyes!

Don't know if you agree.

I know this is a very old thread, but I get tears in my eyes when I look at these photos. I remember seeing clips from Grace's funeral and Prince Rainier looked like he was ready to collapse. So, so sad.

Historically, Queen Anne who lost so many children, Catherine de Braganza who never had any children, and Catherine of Aragon who got a very raw deal from her father, her father-in-law and her husband.

Princess Diana reflected her sadness and didn't always try to cover it up when others would have.

Princess Mabel. Perhaps not the saddest all of her life, but right now the saddest.

Princess Grace who never quite accepted that being a Princess meant that she could not also continue to have an acting career, and of course her 3 miscarriages meant she also could not have the large family she wanted.

Even the Duke of Windsor although he had Wallis, he too had sad eyes.

Don't think they were mentioned yet, and i don't know exactly how sad their lives were, but the royals i would least want to lifeswap with:
Ivan VI of Russia and his siblings Elizabeth, Catherine, Alexei, Peter...
Ivan imprisoned from the age of 1 until his death at age 24 (seeing noone but his jailer)
the siblings born in captivity and only released when they were well in their 40's into the custody of an aunt

Mme Royale and Louis xvii, the children of Louis xvi and Marie Antoinette. Fallen from the gilded court at Versailles, to a frightening existence in volatile revolutionary Paris. Then [on the abolition of their fathers throne] imprisonment in the Temple prison, the excecution of their father, separation from their mother [also excecuted].
Louis Charles died in wretched circumstances, brutalised by his gaolers, in solitary confinement, starving in a filthy cell, unwashed for months. His Sister fared a little better, surviving to be ransomed by her mothers family, but remained a tragic, melancholy figure for the rest of her life.
