So, share information about lesser-known monarchist figures.

I'll begin with Waldemar Becker (1840-1907). He was a Finnish soldier, politician and adventurer. He fought with the Spaniards against Morocco, with Emperor Maximilian in Mexico (where he converted to Catholicism) and with the Egyptians, Serbs and Greeks against the Ottomans. He later worked as a newspaperman, supporting French and Spanish traditionalists. He was also a Finnish nationalist. During Nicholas II's attempted Russification of Finland, he proposed a military campaign to liberate his native land. Thus he can be seen as a precursor to the Jäger movement. Today he's sadly mostly forgotten even here in Finland.

Georg Elfvengren (1889-1927) was a Finnish lieutenant colonel who participated in the First World War, the Finnish and Russian Civil Wars, as well as the Kinship Wars in Ingria. After the war, he continued his anti-Bolshevik activities, traveled secretly to Soviet Russia in 1925, got caught and was shot in Moscow in 1927. I'm not able to tell much more since different biographies tell different things. But here's all I know for sure. I might return to the subject later.

Uzun Haji (1848-1920) was a Dagestani religious and political leader. By nationality, he was an Avar. During the Russian Civil War, he led the North Caucasian Emirate, an independent monarchy under the protection of the Ottoman Sultan. The Emirate was formed after clashes with Anton Denikin's White troops and being unable to drive them out, became dependent on Bolshevik assistance. With a deteriorating military and economic situation in his hands, Uzun Haji consented to the Emirate becoming an autonomous part of the Russian SFSR. Thus ended the monarchical ambitions of the North Caucasian Muslims.
