"King George V (1865-1936) - father of King George VI (1895-1952). One of the few men in history who can make that beard and moustache combination work (apart from Nicholas II who also looks great) and actually look wonderful in it."
The "Twins": Nicholas II of Russia (left) and his look alike first cousin George V of England. The two men were the sons of Danish royal sisters Alexandra and Dagmar. Dagmar, wife of Alexander III of Russia and mother of Nicholas II, had the happier marriage but lost almost her entire family to the Bolshevik Revolution.
