Looking at Wikipedia it seems that no countries that have currently reigning monarchies participated in the battle, so I can't see why they would be there.

Well yes they wouldn't be there, but as I am unfamiliar with titles connected to titles and of the battle itself as no explanation was give, that's why I asked if any of the royals in the picture were from a current reigning royal family.

Ah, okay. Well, once again this is from Wikipedia.

The Battle of Nations, also known as the Battle of Leipzig, was the largest pre-World War I European battle and the first one in which Napoleon was decisively defeated. It was fought between the French army, under Napoleon, and a coalition army.

On the French side was Warsaw, Italy, Naples, and at first Saxony and Württemberg. On the Coalition side was Russia, Austria, Prussia, Sweden, and at the end Saxony and Württemberg. And now that I'm looking at it closer and seeing Sweden in there I'm correcting my previous statement in the reigning houses not being involved.
