The Divine Right of Kings

Things I write for my own pleasure

To believe in the divine right of Kings and consequently in the unpolluted bloodlines of kings, is to place more trust in the female connubial felicity of Princesses than history would tend to justify.

The thousands of years which have preceded us, rather support those historians amongst us who believe that unless one has been thrown out of a whore house for moral turpitude - in all likelihood dressed in a Nazi uniform and singing “Old MacDonald Had a Farm” - then one is not really a true descendant of traditional blue blood and is not really suitable to be king.

That avenger of connubial perfidy, the manly icon going by the name of Henry VIII, has shown how unsafe royal bloodlines can be, in the case of his Queen Catherine Howard’s proven affair with the courtier Thomas Culpeper.

In consequence the De Greeks refuse to be accessories to the propagation of a falsehood by joining the crowds which are cheering young men with questionable royal blood in their veins, and the unquestionable heart of a clown in their chests.

As far as the virtue of Princesses is concerned, I can only quote that great man of letters and confirmed royalist, Dr Samuel Johnson:

'My dear Sir, never accustom your mind to mingle virtue and vice. The woman's a whore, and there's an end on't.'

Tsk, tsk, Young Lisa, I do not know what you mean, I am sure. I am used to putting down thoughts which occur to me for my book, and I wanted to share them with you. How would this appear in the book do you think, if I manage to put it in somehow? :-))))

Brother Mentalist, I am just a peasant from Cyprus and we do not have princes where I come from. So my thoughts are simply a vague idea floating nebulously in what I sometimes laughingly call my mind. :-)))

With reference, dimi, to the divine right of kings as I understand it/them, a monarch is not subject to any earthly authority and therefore not subject to the will of his people.

Unfortunately, in the U.S. at present, it appears that no one has informed our leader yet that the divine right does NOT apply to him.

DRBJ the subject is unimportant to me when I am playing with words. It is the text that is important, so did it not make you AT LEAST smile? :-)))

No titter nor chuckle, but a semblance of a smile did appear. But it got chased away by my serious interpretation. I do apologize.

Give an explanation of what you were wanting this to mean. I took it about 3 different ways. I know you could fit it in your book but you've only sent me 2 chapters. I'm not on your priority list anymore. What I said earlier was a joke because you were being so bold. It's a dumb thing some of us Americans say being sarcastic. But poor Catherine. If I had to sleep with that fat, deranged, pig Henry VIII, I assure you, there would be many Culpeppers. The bloodline would be tarnished for sure. LOL. Sorry. I think I would have ordered my own beheading. I'm pretty sure William is of the lineage, but that Harry? You will never make me believe that one!

DRBJ my love, I tend to throw words into what I call a swimming pool of words,and then I jump in and wallow in them, getting tangled up in them.During the process, some words stick to me and then I use those to create phrases. The subject is not really of importance to me. In other words, next time I jump into my word swimming pool, I may come up with different words which will fit an approach in favor of royalty :-)))))

Am I too crazy? :-))

Lisa my Angel, William who? :-)))))

I have nothing against anyone. I just mind my own business and express my thoughts as they occur to me. I shall definitely not convince any royalists to change their minds, nor do I care to try. But just as they have their thoughts, I have mine and, with tongue in cheek, I sometimes like to express them, using words from my "word swimming pool" as I wrote above.

And I cannot believe that you would be unfaithful :-))))

Kiss you :-)

DG, I was most impressed by this one. What turns of phrase:

female connubial felicity

avenger of connubial perfidy

accessories to the propagation of a falsehood

...and of course the Old MacDonald bit! :D

The Old MacDonald Had a Farm tune in the midst of "serious" talk about royalty and such made me smile, and now reading the comments, I see Feline agrees. I was looking for an ending, but realized its a chapter from your book, not a regular hub. :)

Friends,

The great General Sun Tzu said that if you are not understood the first time, then it is probably your fault.

The fact that people here whose intelligence time and time again has been proven to be much greater than mine, thought that I was even slightly serious, shows that I have not expressed myself as well as I thought.

I am obviously a penny-worth philosopher, so I shall have to re-write this piece, or remove it altogether :-)))

THANK YOU for showing me my weaknesses! I truly appreciate it :-)
