Blue Bloods: Ruling and Royal Families -- PICTURES

December 19, 2011

Britain's Prince Harry is coming to D.C. to collect an award for his humanitarian work. However, though the United Kingdom's royal family may be the most well-known, they're far from the only dynasty. We've assembled a slideshow of places around the world where running a country is the family business.
