I've taken my understanding of royalty from Game of Thrones and World of Warcraft. Did they put his head on a pike, and parade it down Tower road?

Even if he did make a point of it, wouldn't some sort of statute of limitation have passed? I mean, the current queen has inherited from a long series of predecessors who were all instated with the pretty ceremony and legally binding documentation. Complaining that someone got screwed out of something 500 years ago would open the floodgate to a lot of similar complaints. The current royals family, or at least the queen, is doing a pretty good job. No need to toss everything up.

Came here to post my King Ralph pic from the earlier red thread. Thanks for saving me the effort, Poundit Hardus.

Ok.
If I found out that I was supposed to be the rightful King of England... I'd be turning over every stone, lawyer, and vault I could find until I mysteriously vanished one night. I mean, it's a Kingship. Figurehead, yes, but damn. It's a Kingship.

/Kingship.
//Would also take Scottland.
///Or Spain.
////Or just slashies.

They used to. They were so pissed at Cromwell after the restoration, they dug up his rotting corpse cut it's head off, and stuck it on a pike in front of the palace for 30 or so years.

I'd like to see this guy raise an army and invade England. The problem with the inbred twats that sit on the throne now is that there is no chance of someone else ever taking it from them.

But it worked out so well for Israel!

A real King would have marched right up, taken that crown, backslapped its former wearer, immediately farked the Queen, and no one would have done shiat about it.

Yeah, but attacking the commonwealth with a bunch of petty criminals doesn't really work out too well. The Nazis learned that in WWII.

It seems like some sort of division would be the solution, give him Wales and Cornwall or something. They can call it the Mikelaw.

The people will flock to their rightful King.

Mikelaw is too blunt. Your name needs more subtlety and tact attached to it.

I propose the Kingdom of Cornhole.
 
2012-07-05 08:29:01 PM  
Screw it. I'm chopping off the heads of the current royals and usurping the throne!

Whatcha gonna do, so-called Mi5???

It's precisely as subtle as Danelaw.

Failing that, they can pay him a Mikegeld to keep his armies away.

Hey. He's not my king. I didn't vote for him. Just because some watery tart threw a sword at him, doesn't make him my king.

Trying to nall down the exact day of a child's conception with the technology available 500 years ago is nonsensical.

How do you know he's a king?
 
2012-07-05 08:38:45 PM  
Wait, let me get this straight. The "rightful" King of england dies. But, he can't be the rightful King, being dead and all. WTF ! Even if he were undead he would still be a figurehead.

/Zombie King?!?

Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.

OK
taken that crown,
OK
backslapped its former wearer,

immediately farked the Queen,
AW HELL NO
and no one would have done shiat about it.

/totally the first thing I thought of.
 
2012-07-05 08:45:37 PM  
Phthtpt. There's no way to tell if he would have been king, even if his family had taken control from Edward. His ancestors might have married differently, knowing they were progenitors of a royal line. Or one of them might have lost a war against the French, and this year's Olympics would be in Londres.

That ancestor of his is UGLY. Glad to see they've bred some of that inbreeding out of the current earls.

It took surprisingly long for this to be posted. Must be the oppression from the violence inherent in the system.

Get in line behind Idi Amin for King of Scotland. Or me (queen, that is) I already live here within sword-lobbing distance of a castle - no moist bints required.

If Wills and Kate don't/can't produce the next heir and the crown passes to half-brother Harry and his issue, it could well happen.
