The first season of PBS' Victoria might be over, but that doesn't mean we can't still obsess over the historical figures who inspired the show. I'm not sure about you, but a huge part of my viewing experience involved pausing every few minutes to dig into historical research on what actually happened and what these people actually looked like. Get a load of the latter with these compare-and-contrast portraits of the real-life people and the actors who play them:

Queen Victoria

Prince Albert

Lord Melbourne

Prince Ernst

Sir Robert Peel

The Duchess of Kent

Sir John Conroy

Charles Elmé Francatelli
