# Can aqua regia/royal water dissolve lead? [duplicate]

As known aqua regia can't dissolve $$\ce{Ag}$$ because formation of $$\ce{AgCl}$$ precipitate. Similarly will aqua regia precipitate $$\ce{Pb}$$ as $$\ce{PbCl2}$$? OR It is not possible to observe this because aqua regia produce heat keeping solution warm ($$\ce{PbCl2}$$ is soluble in hot water).
