On the Royal Prowl
Photograph by V. C. Scott O'Connor, 1911

Britain’s King George V, standing, started his rule with a bang. Celebrating his recent coronation, the monarch traveled to the wilds of Nepal in 1911 for a two-week hunting expedition, where he bagged 21 tigers, eight rhinos, and a bear. Local wildlife might have wished his trip were shorter.
