.Morning Quincy...jut a slight correction here, the Queen's mother was actually the Queen Consort to King George V1...
we have had three English Queens, Queen Elizabeth 1;Queen Victoria
and the present Queen, Eliabeth 11.
I understand that the country has been more powerful trough each of their reigns as opposed to any of the male Monarchs.
lol...But you got to love Henry V...long bow,French,Rout.....
You mention Elizabeth 1,but there's a theory she could have been a man and the real Elizabeth died at the age of about Eight and as Henry V111 only saw her rarely and her illness he didn't know,the two people looking after the princess would have been killed so they got the closet age they could get from the village near where she was staying and the virgin Queen was born,only a theory but an interesting one..

Where's Tony when we need him ? I thought Hitler was responsible for WWII and then Japan chimed in?
Not clear on what started WWI.
Like a genie popping out of the lamp...!

WWI was a result of a variety of factors - the alliance system, the arms race (particularly the naval race), the weakness of Austria-Hungary and her inability to control her minorities, pre-determined war plans (particularly the German Schlieffen Plan), colonial rivalries, and most of all, miscalculation - no one anticipated just what sort of a war would be unleashed. It was a very complicated combination of factors

WW2 is much easier - German ambitions in the form of Hitler for old style domination of Europe.

Sorry K, that one is an utter load of cobblers - no way could it be true. Put forward by an individual who is not even an historian, it has been laughed out of court by every academic. For one thing, there were too many who would know the secret in the court circle as their was incredible interest in Elizabeth's child bearing abilities.

Maybe Brams Stoker was a tadge zealous but still interesting and a theory never the less,on the other side we can't be sure she's Henry's daughter considering her mother was a bit of a flirt and accused of sleeping with five men...Mind you think Elizabeth's step father would know one way or other,lol,mind you he ended up with his head lopped off ..

I see this argument on my doorstep (Wales) and I can understand
it to a point, but without English my Welsh neighbours could
not conduct business out of their area without the English language.
language differences have never thwarted trade
and no, my friends in and from Egypt are some of the most loving and peaceable people I have ever known, if you want to paint with a broad brush you should start with caucasians, the kkk is alive and well in America is an example they are "fine church going people"

What has this to do with the Royal family?
when I see the queens husband at high ceremonies his attire reminded me of Gaddafi

it is representational of military expansion which has lead to the downfall of every country that has done it

<quoted text>The fact that Germany was not totally defeated in WW1 was the reason for WW2. Just like the US failure to really take out Iraq in the first gulf war was the reason for the second war. When you defeat an enemy it must be a total defeat

It was total defeat Denny, the German High Command at the time signed the Declaration of Total Surrender, when Hitler came to power in the early '30's he started to rebuild the armed forces in Germany whereas we, and that includes France, had let our armed forces depreciate, lower in strength. Much against the disgust of Winston Churchill at the time as he could see what was happening in Germany, he protested about it but he wasn't in power at the time.
He was classed as a War Monger as we were on a Peace In Our Time kick ...Neville Chamberlain and all that......
well if they signed a paper it has to be true

That is about as inane as you can get,he's in the forces he's duty bound to go,but if he refused you would be the first person pointing the finger calling him a coward or he's privilege so he doesn't have to go...At least this brave man has got more balls and honour than all our politicians and their useless offspring put together,remembering it was the politicians that started Iraq,Afghanistan and so on..
