Advent Puzzle 11 Solution: (Unsolved) Deadline passed without solution. (options to reactivate this may come later)

Story:
Charles examined the board of puzzles and the various solutions posted so far. He looked between the various copious notes that had been made. He sighed, sat and sipped delicately at his tea, ensuring that his thumb and little finger were extended properly as a gentleman of standing should when enjoying tea.

However, his eyes narrowed as he spied something among the papers, and he almost risked upsetting his beverage - and splashing his moustasche! - as he started. None the less, he retained his composure and set the teacup down carefully before strolling toward the board nonchalantly so as not to draw attention from the other Explorers and risk drawing attention to the embarrassing detail.

His fingers plucked the particular assortment of papers from the board, It was a simple enough thing: a bundle of papers and envelops, probably the assorted envelopes from the other puzzles found so far. However, he didn't mind that. What mattered was the hideous- no,
offensive, slanderous piece of unchivalrous and downright un-English piece of heresy: He rubbed at the stamp, but the mark didn't come away.

Furious, he pulled that letter loose and returned to the table, rubbing until the stamp - and the offencive vandalism on it - came away. Now, a decent moustache wouldn't look amiss on most people- but to
dare subject the image of the Queen to one was gross sacrilage!

Having removed the offending article, he looked at the envelope for any indication of who might've commited the treasonous act. 'Challenge puzzle 11: Charles' Challenge' It read.



Puzzle: My work with Renowned Explorers helped make the Society famous, and when I review my expeditions, you'll see why - but you need my title, not my nomme de guerre.


This puzzle has not yet been solved, though the bonus point has been, meaning that only the puzzle and the cryptic remain should the puzzle be reopened later.


A complete submission will include:
  • Your answer for the puzzle in text.
  • The image shows the requirement of the puzzle (In this case, it would be either the background map matching the chosen expedition, or the image for that expedition in the form of:
    • Finishing screen for that expedition
    • Win screen including the location
    • The selection of that expedition on the world map (completed expeditions only - if not completed, does not count!)
  • You may use either the base game or More To Explore for this puzzle.
Bonus point: The first people to correctly identify a unique monarch whose image might be vandalised by a moustache for Charles to find alongside their submission will earn a bonus point. (First submission defined by most recent edit)

Additional Secret: For a (minor) cryptic clue towards the grand challenge, the community must find all the relevant expeditions between them (only 1 expedition per entry permitted, and the correct answer is also required before the expedition may be included for the cryptic clue).

Deadline: Passed

Spoilers: You may wish to use spoilers so that other players can choose if they wish to know the answer while the puzzle is up or not. To do so, copy this:

(color=#E1EBF2)*Your answer here*(/color)

and replace the brackets ( and ) with [ and ]
