'The Royal Dozen' is an astonishing historical series by the talented artist Alexia Sinclair. The series features all males with different power statuses, such as that of princes, warlords, dandies and diplomats. Alexia Sinclair claims she had chosen her selection based on the men's "contrasts in leadership, their flamboyancies and their enduring influence upon society."

The Royal Dozen is like one colorfully amazing history lesson, featuring men you may have learned about, such as Louis XIV, who was known as The Sun King, Genghis Khan, Charles II and Alexander, The Great. Just by looking at the men's portraits, you can get an idea of what they are known for and why they made history. The artworks are absolutely beautiful and intriguing, featuring many intricate details.
