I thought I had outgrown irony 25 years ago. I realised I was wrong when I saw Prince Charles tear up after he laid a wreath at the tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Athens and subsequently shed tears as the band played ‘God save the Queen’ in his honour.
The event was in celebration of the bicentennial of the 1821 Greek revolution against the Turks and the Greek media went into ruptures about those tears because they interpreted them to be the result of his Greek heritage. Prince Charles had referred to Greece as the country of his grandfather and the birthplace of his father, ergo the implication was that he is by a substantial part Greek.
The good prince has as much Greek blood in his veins as he has English blood, meaning NONE. To the few historians who are not in the pocket of the English monarchy this will not be a surprise, but I shall expand on this anon.
At 72, Prince Charles is at the springtime of his eternity, inhabiting as he does a body which is not currently at its best. So, excluding the possibility of a speck of dust causing those tears, the probability is that hearing ‘God save the Queen’ he was probably thinking it was bloody unfair that the band was not currently playing ‘God save the King’, he being rightfully the king if there was any justice in this prejudicial world. That mother of his is holding on to the throne like an Iranian limpet mine to the hull of an Israeli tanker and has no intention of letting go this side of the grave.
The English people would be astonished to learn that they have been slaves to a bunch of foreigners, all related in some way or other, for about 950 years. The foreigners who occupied their lands and rule over them since have made sure that this fact is carefully kept from them. How could that be, they would ask in their pure innocence?
Here are the historical facts in abbreviation for the unenlightened:
In 1066 William the Bastard, Duke of Normandy, sailed over to England with 7.000 Normans and French mates and following his victory over king Harold Godwinson (another foreigner) at the Battle of Hastings he occupied the whole of England. He confiscated the land from the English landowners, keeping 25% of the total for himself. He then divided the rest amongst his captains, whom he anointed as ‘Barons’.
The English people did not take kindly to this arrangement and there were several revolts, but the matter was resoled after a revolution in York caused William and his ‘Barons’ to slaughter not only every English man woman and child they could find in York and its surrounding area, but also every animal and to burn all the crops. Anyone who managed to survive the genocide by hiding in the woods subsequently died of starvation.
So total was the genocide that even William on his deathbed commented that perhaps in that instance he was a tad excessive.
At that point the English concluded that discretion was the better part of valour, so they decided to consider William and his Barons to be English. Since they were English there was no cause for rebellion.
And so, all the foreigners who stole English lands became English, even though they still treated England as an occupied land and the English as an occupied people. In fact the occupiers refused to speak English until the 5th century, when they wanted the locals to go willingly to die in France during the hundred years war.
The bloodline of William the Bastard (he was born out of wedlock) rule Europe to this day. Prince Charles is on the scene because one of William’s daughters married the German Holly Emperor.
The French Plantagenet line of kings begun with Henry II, Count of Anjou, Duke of Normandy who proudly called himself Henry FitzEmpress (meaning descendant of an Empress, meaning the above-mentioned wife of the German Holly Emperor). The most well known ‘English’ hero king was, in fact French. I refer to one Richard the Lionheart, son of Henry of Anjou and Eleanor of Aquitaine. Both French. Need I say more?
So back to Prince Charles.
After the costly English civil war and the subsequent beheading of King Charles, the Barons of the time decided it was not profitable to kill each other. So, they agreed to import a German prince to be king, since he was descended from William’ daughter and second cousin to Anne, Queen of Great Britain. Enter George I (George Louis; German: Georg Ludwig).
This led to a German woman named Victoria who became Queen of England and whose offspring still rules Europe, under the guise of democracy.
None of the kings or Queens of England ever married a local. They all married foreigners of other European royal households. Consequently, none of them have English blood, if we discard the possible occasional illegal romp of a reigning queen with the stable lad.
If Greek media knew about this history, they would not be so hasty in assuming that Prince Charles has any real Greek blood in his veins. And Greek media should instead celebrate the fact that we have not contributed to such a vicious and pitilessly cruel institution.
