    A strongly real Beauville group is a Beauville group that defines a real Beauville surface. Here we discuss efforts to find examples of these groups, emphasising on the one extreme finite simple groups and on the other abelian and nilpotent groups. We also discuss the case of characteristically simple groups and almost simple groups. En route we shall discuss several questions, open problems and conjectures as well as giving several new examples of infinite families of strongly real Beauville groups.
