At the time of his birth, he was second in the line of succession to succeed his mother; he is currently fifth in line.

In 1986, Prince Andrew married Sarah Ferguson; the couple's marriage, subsequent separation and eventual divorce in 1996 attracted a high level of media coverage. They have two young daughters Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie.

January 2015, the British Press reports:

King George V

The British House of Windsor is Actually German

The British Queen Victoria, she came from the House of Wettin, which didn't become the House of Windsor until 1917.

1917: King George V by royal proclamation changed the name of the British Royal Family from the German Saxe-Coburg and Gotha (a branch of the House of Wettin) to the English Windsor, due to the anti-German sentiment in the British Empire during World War I.

Apparently King George V didn't even speak English.

The most prominent member of the House of Windsor is its head, Queen Elizabeth II, the current reigning "British" Queen.

The European Monarchies are all Related

The German "Windsors" and the Russian Romanovs, were family. In the picture above for example Nicholas II and George V, were cousins.

In Marketing there is a term called Demand Generation. One of the keys to Demand Generation is to create a story around an idea. It gets people interested and involved in a new idea or product.

In this 2011 British Daily Mail News Report, we can see an example of demand creation of the British Prince Harry as the new Russian leader, the article claims it is something the Russians want.

"Tsar Harry! Russians who want British prince to take vacant throne (just don't mention the Romanovs)"

They claim that the Russians were so impressed with Royal Wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton, that Russians want one of those monarchs as well.

Is it possible that the monarchies of the world get together to conspire?

Queen Victoria 1819-1901


Name: Queen Victoria
Born: 24th May 1819
Died: 22nd January 1901 aged 81
Reign: 1837 - 1901, 64 years

Named Alexandrina Victoria after her godfather, Tsar Alexander II of Russia, Victoria was born on May 24th, in Kensington Palace, London.

She was the daughter of Edward, the Duke of Kent, fourth son of George III, and Princess Victoria Maria Louisa of Saxe-Coburg (sister of King Leopold of Belgium).

Her father, Edward, died when she was 8 months old upon whereupon she became heir to the throne as her three uncles who were ahead of her in succession had no legitamate children of their own.

1937: Victoria became Queen when William IV died, at the age of 18 and she ruled for 64 years.

The Queen's Secret Chambers

Britain: Recent Excavation Reveals Secret Chamber Under Buckingham Palace, the Head of the Anglican Church of England had her own little Chapel.

Victoria and Albert had both participated in seances and psychics and mediums had been presented to Victoria, including the clairvoyant Georgiana Eagle, who demonstrated her powers before the Queen at Osborne House, on the Isle of Wight, in July of 1846.

Intriguing objects found on the site include hundreds of burnt candles, various jewelry and a multitude of animal and human bones, including the cranium of a young adult woman. ~World News Daily Report, November 2014

Mean Victoria: Queen revealed to loath her 'ugly, frog-like' children. ~UK Express, 2012

As a new BBC series emphasises, the woman who ruled over the British Empire was actually viscerally repelled by her five daughters and four sons when they first came along and behaved like a domestic tyrant in later life, seeking to control and belittle them.

“It is a story of manipulation, conflict, intimidation, emotional blackmail and fevered attempts by her children to escape the clutches of their domineering and needy mother,” says the three-part documentary, Queen Victoria’s Children, which quotes the monarch’s extensive letters as well as several historians and biographers. They are all condemnatory but it’s Victoria’s own words that horrify most.

In one letter she labels babies “nasty objects”, adding the even “the prettiest are frightful” and alludes to their “big body and little limbs and that terrible frog-like action.”

Prince Phillip Isn't Crazy About Families Either

Prince Phillip has a Killer Sense of Humor

Buckingham Castle has a Masonic Lodge

Apparently, Prince Philip, the husband of Queen Elizabeth, was initiated into Freemasonry at Navy Lodge No 2612, London, on December 5, 1952:

“Present at the initiation were the Earl of Scarborough, grand master...and Geoffrey Fisher, archbishop of Canterbury. The lodge has many ties with the royal family as King Edward VII served as its first master in 1896 when he was Prince of Wales. King George VI...served as master when he was Duke of York. In 1928 H.R.H. Duke of Kent...was master and later became grand master of the Grand Lodge of England.” – William Denslow,10,000 Famous Freemasons, 1957.

An article in the British press reported that a Masonic Lodge was built inside Buckingham Palace, and they pretended the "Queen was not amused". The Royal Crown has a long history with Masons and the Occult.

We know the monarchies around the world are connected on some level, as they married among themselves. According to Wikipedia, they are one big, perhaps not so happy family. "A single bloodline connects the royal families of Europe."

The Dracula Family?

Dracula Family, Confirmed

The father of Princess Diana's boyfriend attacked the British Royal family after Princess Diana's with a series of insults and accusations at the inquest looking into how the couple died. Mohamed Al Fayed, father of Dodi, repeated his allegations of a massive cover-up involving the Royal family, paparazzi and for the first time Diana's sister. He has previously included British intelligence services in the alleged plot.

"Diana suffered for years under this Dracula family"

Years later we find Prince Charles joking in an interview saying, “Transylvania is in my blood,” Prince Charles jokes in an interview. “The genealogy shows I am descended from Vlad the Impaler, so I do have a bit of a stake in the country.”

Transylvanian-born Vlad the Impaler is said to have dispatched more than 100,000 Turkish warriors in battle. The vampire legend is said to have been inspired by his predilection for eating bread dipped in his victim’s blood. Dracula means “son of the devil” in Romanian. ~Telegraph UK 2012

The British Royal Family was the Original Drug Cartel

We know from the Opium Wars that England was the Colombia of the of the 18th century, and held a monopoly on Opium exports from India.


According to this book, the Royal Family are covert Cartel Bosses to this day.

In fact, the chain of interlocking "free enterprise*' relationships that describes the flow of drugs and dirty money in and out of the United States only masks the type of conspiracies that Americans see not in pulp thrillers, but in nightmares. We will uncover these conspiracies, the spider's web of the British monarchy — the Italian-surname organized crime syndicates, London's Zionist-cover terrorist operation, the secrets of Peking's dope-running foreign intelligence organization. We will trace them all back to their common "mother," the great aristocratic families of Britain.

The fascinating book explains how the British Crown functions so effectively as a crime syndicate.

Bulwer-Lytton is best known to Americans through his 183S novel. The Last Days of Pompeii, but he is also both the spiritual father of the Rhodes-Milner secret societies and of Nazi fascism. A mystic and prenascent fascist, Bulwer-Lytton led the English Rosicrucians. a branch of the Scottish Rite Masons headed by his Prime Minister Palmerston.

Unlike the comparatively closed members of the British elite around him, Bulwer-Lytton was an outspoken exponent of the Isis cult, which formed the subject of his famous novel. His popularized Isis myth was the inspiration for an entire array of warped imitations.

Included among these was Helena Blavatsky's book, Isis Unveiled, and her Theosophist cult. Theosophy was the Satanic bible of the mystic secret societies, including Germany's "Thule" group, which produced most of Hitler's SS. (SO).

Although the trafficking of Opium into China was mostly under the supervision of Queen Elizabeth, Queen Victoria reigned over the Opium Wars when the British Navy brutally attacked China for making their cash cow illegal.

  • 1527
    During the height of the Reformation, opium is reintroduced into European medical literature by Paracelsus as laudanum. These black pills or "Stones of Immortality" were made of opium thebaicum, citrus juice and quintessence of gold and prescribed as painkillers.
  • 1600s
    Residents of Persia and India begin eating and drinking opium mixtures for recreational use. Portuguese merchants carrying cargoes of Indian opium through Macao direct its trade flow into China.
  • 1601
    Ships chartered by Elizabeth I are instructed to purchase the finest Indian opium and transport it back to England.

"Cannabis prohibition in Britain itself would come about as a result of international drug treaties. The first of these, the Hague Anti-Opium Convention, was signed in 1912, and went into effect in 1919. Signatories, including Britain, agreed to control the manufacture and sale of opium and cocaine. Cannabis was not included. But in the early 1920s, a number of countries, especially Egypt, began agitating for the inclusion of Indian hemp. The British were not enthusiastic, but ironically, the Egyptian delegate who made a powerful, and successful, case against hemp drugs at the Second Opium Conference in 1924 relied heavily on a report by a British doctor who had been in charge of the Egyptian Lunacy Department when Egypt was a British protectorate. As Mills put it, "The many tentacles of the empire seem to have become entangled on the issue of cannabis" (p. 187).

Queen Elizabeth I Created the Original 007

Sir Francis Walsingham

Credit for creating the first “regular” English secret service usually goes to Elizabeth I’s spymaster, Sir Francis Walsingham. He faced a predicament shared by many of his successors; the need to combat both external and internal threats and the collaboration of the two.

In the case of the Protestant Walsingham and his Protestant Queen, the unifying factor among their enemies was devotion to fighting Catholicism.

Walsingham battled this menace by recruiting agents at home and abroad and waging an aggressive campaign of counter-subversion. His most successful weapon was the provocateur or “mole” who penetrated and compromised hostile conspiracies. He also followed the maxim that England’s enemy’s enemy was her friend, or at least an exploitable tool. In addition to Protestant sympathisers and dissident Catholics, he is also supposed to have enlisted the help of witches, sorcerers and atheists in Albion’s cause.

John Dee, Occult Advisor to Queen Elizabeth I

John Dee (13 July 1527 – 1608 or 1609) was a mathematician, astronomer, astrologer, occultist, imperialist and adviser to Queen Elizabeth I

Little surprise that one of Walsingham’s better known operatives was an Elizabethan occultist whose interests included hermeticism, alchemy, astrology and conversing with “angels.” This was Dr. John Dee (1527–1608), a man whose encoded signature – a stylised representation of handled spectacles – was later appropriated by Ian Fleming for his “007.” Among other things, Dee was a prophet of England’s Manifest Destiny. He allegedly coined the term “Britannia” and conjured up the image of the small island kingdom as the centre of a world-girdling maritime empire.

While Dee served Walsingham well, he was first and foremost a scholar and seems to have lacked the ruthless quality often required of a secret agent. Thus, it surely was Walsingham’s hand that in 1582 steered Edward Kelley into his path. Dee wished to commune with the spirits but lacked mediumistic powers. Kelley had them – or claimed to – and the pair formed a team which endured for some seven years. Kelley was a dubious character, a convicted forge and counterfeiter whose occult interests included necromancy and maybe outright diabolism.

Since the angels “spoke” through Kelley, and Dee was inclined to do whatever they decreed, Kelley was ideally positioned to “manage” Dee. Kelley would have had no qualms about doing whatever Walsingham required. Little wonder that some three centuries later another English occultist-spy, Aleister Crowley, would proclaim himself the reincarnation of Edward Kelley.

Dee and Kelley’s most important mission was their extended visit to Central Europe in the 1580s. This brought them to the court of Habsburg Emperor Rudolf II, nephew of England’s nemesis, Philip II of Spain, and host to a dangerous cabal of Catholic exiles. Kelley ultimately infiltrated and betrayed this group and their co-conspirators in England. Dee ingratiated himself (and by extension, Kelley) to Rudolf by providing the Emperor with rare tomes of esoterica.

King Henry VIII: 1509-1547

Queen Elizabeth established what would become the World's Biggest Drug Cartel, but her father, King Henry VIII, was the one that made history.

Henry VIII is famous for having six wives two of whom he executed at the Tower of London.

Henry VIII broke with the Roman Catholic Church and established the Church of England – all to get his first divorce. This also allowed him to seize church land and property (a great help in financing costly European wars). Under Henry VIII, England witnessed the wholesale destruction of beautiful monastic buildings and libraries. Henry VIII was excommunicated bin the Catholic church in 1533.

It is well known that, King Henry VIII was grossly overweight, and possibly suffered from both gout and syphilis. Henry died in 1547 at Whitehall in London and was buried at Windsor. At his death King Henry VIII left three recognized children, each of whom had a turn on the English throne: Edward VI, Mary I (“Bloody” Mary), and Elizabeth I. In the British Monarchy, the fight between good and evil, was won by the latter.

If there was a proper description of the brilliant PR term "Queen Mother", it would likely be "Granny's Got a Gun". The paternal image portrayed for the King might make sense. If the rumors are true, the Kings have sired much of Great Britain.

Kidding aside, the Monarchies could be considered the original Communists or the "Caviar Communists" as they say in Latin America. It was certainly Crony Capitalism at its' finest. Jacobinism is their covert ally.
