Title: Help Identifying this Man
Post by: Alan65 on 12 September 2009, 02:02:57
Anyone recognize this guy?  Don't know his nationality although that Iron Cross suggests a German (could others win it?) and don't know if he's royalty or a military leader (or both.)  thanks in advance for any help1

I am going to go with Prinzregent Luitpold von Bayern, son of King Ludwig I. of Bavaria, 12 March 1821–12 December 1912.

Hehe you have no idea how much effort I put into finding that guy, I really hate to lose.

:)

I lucked out and matched a couple of the medals which narrowed it down to this guy or Baden then I tripped over that picture which solved the problem.

Thanks, Monty!  Yes, better late than never.

(I think I actually sold this postcard some time ago; I owe you a beer next time you're in Seattle.)

Indeed, we need more challenges like that.

Hehe careful what you wish for, I have several friends in Seattle.

Just unfortunate the information was too late to be of any use.
