The Royal Challenge: about kings & queens

This challenge closed about 8 years ago.

The Challenge

This is our first challenge. As John let it free to me (the bubblehex!) to define the rules, I would like to see pictures illustrating those historic landmarks of Europe related to either a queen or a king.
Please add the history about the site ( including dates and name of the queen or king) and the location in Europe.
I don’t want pictures showing statues or monuments as main subject.

Judging / Voting Criteria

Vote for the best quality pictures keeping in mind that the description should be really informative and interesting.

Rewards & Prizes

I’ll buy a card of the winner as a souvenir of my first challenge!
And the 5 most voted entries will be featured in our group.

Additional Information

You must join the group to take part in the challenge.
Have fun!
I’m looking forward to your great entries!
