10 of History’s Most Eccentric Royals


These royals were known for their whimsical, odd ways. Actually, one of the royals on the list is still with us, and in fact is next in line to the British throne. Eccentric royals have wealth and privilege galore, and those perks make it all too easy for them to indulge in unusual hobbies and habits. Some have a darker edge than others, but this list is focused mostly on strange ways, rather than tyranny.

Of course, there are scads of monarchs who could be featured in a top 10 list with this title. These 10 choices are interesting, but you might choose differently. One sure thing is that learning about the royals of past and present is fascinating, because crowned heads are a rarity.

Most of us wonder at some point what we’d be like if we were royal. It’s safe to say that many of us would be more eccentric than we are.

This is an encore of one of our previous lists, as presented by our YouTube host Simon Whistler. Read the full list!
