Abstract: Let $A$ be a real Banach $^{\ast }$-algebra enjoying the following three conditions: $||{x^{\ast }}x|| = ||{x^{\ast }}||\;||x||,\;Sp{x^{\ast }}x \geqq 0$, and $||{x^{\ast }}|| = ||x||\;(x \in A)$. It is shown, after Ingelstam, Palmer, and Behncke, as a real analogue of the Gelfand-Neumark theorem, that $A$ is isometrically $^{\ast }$-isomorphic onto a real ${C^{\ast }}$-algebra acting on a suitable real (or complex) Hilbert space. The converse is obvious.
