Royalty Cigarette Cards

The British Monarchy's popularity in the first half of the 20th century was spotted by the tobacco manufacturers. Cigarette card sets celebrating coronations, ceremonial clothes and the history of the monarchy were used to entice Britain's loyal Royalists. Not all nations were so fond of their royalty. Nicholas II of Russia was executed a decade after he appeared in the cigarette card series "Portraits of European Royalty", issued in 1908 by WD & HO Wills.

It would be impractical to list every royalty set issued and so I've listed a selection of the more unusual and rare card sets that I've come across in my six years of trading on eBay. I've provided colour scans of a sample card from each set and tried to list all the card titles.
