  • There are 26 monarchies in the world.
  • Some royal families are enormous, while other rulers have no children.
  • Here are photos of 15 royal families around the world.

The British monarchy continues to capture the world’s attention, from Queen Elizabeth II’s longevity to Kate Middleton’s flawless hairstyles to Prince George’s tendency to look royally unimpressed. But there are 25 other royal families in the world, some who reign as figureheads and others who rule with political power.

Here are 15 you might not have heard of.
