This one might be controversial.  I think this guy has what it takes to be a Victorian Hottie, but others might disagree.  I will admit, he’s no Hermann Rorschach, but I think he looks a bit like Benedict Cumberbatch and that has swayed me.  This is George Hamilton-Gordon, 4th Earl of Aberdeen, who served as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom under Queen Victoria from 1852 to 1855.  Before becoming Prime Minister, one of the many offices he held was that of Ambassador Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary to Austria.  Ambassador Extraordinary sounds like a superhero name.

What do you think? Is this guy a hottie or a nottie?
