  • The Power behind the Throne (The position of power occupied by the Royal Family in today’s UK)

    Investigating into today’s power structure in the UK and the role played by the British monarchy, this eye-opening documentary reveals the grossly disproportionate and undemocratic wealth and power of Britain’s Royal Family. The programmer educates the viewers about the sheer wealth of Britain’s unelected monarchy and trails through the various assets and sources of income to which a random family, born into a historic mesh of multiracial kings and queens, unfairly believe they are entitled. The UK with its dark and scattered history of political struggles has become the playground of monarchic power and influence. The documentary exposes all the main instruments of wealth of the British monarchy and provides clear commentary as to why Britain may be the most contradictory democracy in...

  • 5 worst British Monarchs

    The worst monarchs in British history. The united kingdom has witnessed some pretty terrible and ruthless monarchs and rulers over the years. To be fair a kingdom with a history as long and turbulent as Britain's is bound to have had its fair share of incompetent kings and queens. Whilst some of these people have been pure evil, others have just been useless due to mental illness or general incompetence. From the tyrant Tudor King Henry Viii who took six wives, to the truly evil King John who lost most of his territories in France, we're counting down 5 of UK’s worst and most useless kings and queens / monarchs.

Mary (who was to become England's first reigning Queen since Matilda but who is best known to generations of British schoolchildren as Bloody Mary) was the first born child of Henry VIII. For 20 years she was heir to her adored father. Then came the birth of her little half-brother Edward, and Mary found herself cast into the shadows, ignored by her father and declared illegitimate by Act of Parliament.

If that were the case, the entire royal bloodline that traces its lineage to Edward has no legal right to the throne. In fact, according to our own constitutional rules, Britain's real monarch today is not Elizabeth II, but King Michael, a resident of Jerilderie, Australia.

Permission to marry. This really only applies to those who are descendants of King George the Second. For those who are, it means that a representative of the ruling monarchy must be present at the wedding to extend written consent. Number 8. Custodian helmets. As far as traditions go, this one almost didn’t make it. Even though they fell out of favor for regular use over 30 years ago, some police forces are putting them back into regular rotation. Number 7. The Guards at Buckingham Palace. Where else would you find soldiers wearing outfits as good as these? The infantry soldiers seen guarding the palace not only serve a ceremonial role, but are also elite soldiers. Number 6. Summer birthdays for the ruler. Royal celebrations often involve large parades. To boost the chances of sunny skies, birthday celebrations for the monarch are scheduled in the summer months, regardless of when they were born. Queen Elizabeth II is among those who have added an additional date. Number 5. Congratulatory messages from the monarch. Since 1917, England’s Sovereign has sent special cards and greetings to people celebrating milestones like significant birthdays and anniversaries. Number 4. The Queen of England doesn’t have a passport. As they’re all issued in her name, that she carry one is considered unnecessary. Number 3. The Duke of Wellington pays rent. Well, sort of. It’s part of a ceremony commemorating the title-holder of long ago returning victorious from Waterloo and taking up residence in a country-owned home. While the Duke hands a flag to the Queen as rent, there’s no money changing hands. Number 2. Pearly Kings and Queens. Although the charitable organization has changed names several times, they’ve been aiding the poor for around 1 thousand years. The group’s members wear black ensembles embellished with white buttons. Number 1. The State Opening. Each year when the Parliament begins its season the Queen give a government-written speech outlining the year’s agenda.

Mary was a queen driven by faith, she would send hundreds of her subjects to burn at the stake. Written and presented by Dr David Starkey, this is the compelling story of two of England's most striking monarchs: a brother and sister, tied by blood and affection, and torn apart by religion, power, and some of the bloodiest episodes in English history. Mary (who was to become England's first reigning Queen since Matilda but who is best known to generations of British schoolchildren as Bloody Mary) was the first born child of Henry VIII. For 20 years she was heir to her adored father. Then came the birth of her little half-brother Edward, and Mary found herself cast into the shadows, ignored by her father and declared illegitimate by Act of Parliament. Nonetheless she became very attached to the motherless boy, and he to her, declaring her his dearest sister. When Edward was just nine, their father died and the young boy became King, surrounded by advisors and further distanced from his beloved elder sister. But by now they were divided not just by power and status, but also by faith. Mary was a staunch Catholic, Edward a reforming Protestant: at this time such matters were not an issue of personal choice but matters of life or death, treason or heresy. Within a few years Mary was under virtual house arrest and banned from celebrating mass; within a few more years Edward was dead at the tragically early age of 16 and Mary became Queen. She set about making England a Catholic country once more and hundreds of Protestants, including Edward's most trusted advisors, were burnt at the stake because they refused to renounce their faith.

Edward inherited the throne when he was only nine, his quest to change England was to tear apart his family and his country.

Tony Robinson unearths new evidence that strongly suggests that Richard's brother, King Edward IV was illegitimate. If that were the case, the entire royal bloodline that traces its lineage to Edward has no legal right to the throne. In fact, according to our own constitutional rules, Britain's real monarch today is not Elizabeth II, but King Michael, a resident of Jerilderie, Australia.
