Fascinating (really). What a great story! Sure would like some more details. Exactly who were these colonists who offered Charlie the "Crown of America"? Are you sure you can't come up with any names?

Thanks.

And I'm sure others would also be interested

CarolC --- I confess --- I WAS joking when I used the expression 'the revolting colonists' (though it is strictly accurate).
Ron --- You are entirely entitled to mistrust Mr Gardner, As I suggested, you could e-mail him via his website and ask his sources. If you wait for me to trace Gardner's book you may, I'm afraid, wait until random chance or the library angel puts it under my hand again. (I lshare a v.small house with thousands of books, records, tapes & videotapes).
Until that serendipitous moment arrives, I can only tell you (from memory) that a party of colonists who were quite willing to give King George the finger were not, apparently, convinced of the glories of republicanism. Either before or after offering the 'Crown of America' to G.Washington, the asked Charlie Stuart. He was immensely flattered, but said that, since he had no issue, on his death the British were likely to try and take America back. I think Gardner names the originator of the offer and I believe he says that Stuart was asked twice. Best I can do for the present.

Barrie--

It's at least good to know you weren't being ironic--on Mudcat one has to have extremely fine-tuned irony antennae.

I'll try to get access to a copy of the Gardner book--always interested in dusty corners of history---but I'll have to say I'm extremely skeptical for many reasons.

I've read about Mr. Gardner a bit. He doesn't have a reputation for careful scholarship. We would need independent confirmation.

Can you tell me exactly who is supposed to have offered the crown of "Colonial America" to Charles Stuart? I would venture to say it was not an official offer. Who would have done it?--the Continental Congress?--not likely.

Who, how, why, even where this happened would be a question. Charles Stuart was making himself persona non grata in progressively more places--even the French told him he'd have to leave France. Alcoholism and woman-beating did not help.



The tale of Charles and the crown of "Colonial America" is a good story, but I'm afraid without a lot more detail it will have to be relegated to that status, if not, as I mentioned before, fodder for Snopes.

I am of course still interested in any details you may have.

Hi Dean Billington,
I just wanted to say how sorry I was to hear you were related to such
parasitical and unscrupulous wastes of space as the Windsors. If it is not Prince Philip advertising his commitment to world wide environmental issues by shooting as much domestic wildlife as possible or suggesting, after the Dunblane massacre, that a gun was as dangerous as a cricket bat (I wrote challenging him to a duel, him with a bat, me with a twelve bore, but he did not reply). There is also his overt racism: "If you stay here much longer you'll all be slitty-eyed. (China 1986)", "you can't have been here that long - you haven't got a pot belly" (Hungary 1993), "You Egyptians breed too much." (Egypt).

Then there's Prince Charles talking to plants and professing a desire to be reincarnated as a sanitary product. Despite the fact he is as thick as shit he feels he can tell other people how to educate their children, what types of houses we should live and work in and what foods we should eat. The irony is he seems confused that his proclamations are met with near-universal derision.

But it doesn't stop there, in July of 2001, Prince William, on one of his strenuous overseas visits, was pointed out a protected species of ibis flying over head. Just like gramps, his inbred reaction was to reach for a gun and shoot the poor creature dead.

I think Harry, hedonistic, beer swilling, nymphomaniac and prone to tantrums - he slammed a camera into the face of press photographer, must of thought it would be a good idea to continue the family tradition by dressing up as a nazi. It is well known that the Queen Mum was the guardian of the secret vaults at Windsor Castle, which house war-time records of the dealings the Windsors had with the Third Reich. She sent a copy of Mein Kampf to a friend before the war and commented "Even a skip through gives a good idea of [Hitler's] obvious sincerity." Harry's Grandpa, Prince Phillip, had a brother-in-law
in the SS, and Philips uncle was in the Gestapo. Edward VIII, Harry's great-great uncle visited Germany and met Hitler. He is quoted as saying "It would be a tragic thing for the world if Hitler were overthrown."

I'll give Harry a break if he gets proper job, works a proper week, lives in a the kind of house that most people live in and lives on the money that most people live on. If he continues the family tradition of privilege, arrogance and vanity as displayed his mother, father, uncles and grandparents then he will continue to be the butt end of a lot of abuse, and deservedly so.

Piers

The story of Charles Stuart being offered the 'Crown of America' by the revolting colonists appears in a book called 'The Bloodlines of the Holy Grail', by an author whose name escapes me. It was widely published in p/back a few years ago & shouldn'ty be difficult to locate.

To whom it may concern,

I am related to the house of Saxe Coberg Gotha, and hence, related to the royal family.

I hold no position of privilege and am not on the civil list, so do not receive tax payers money.

I wanted to ask you all a few questions.

How many times have you done something, and regretted it ? How many mistakes have you made in the past ? Do you remember what it was like/is like to be young ? How would you like to be permanently punished and ridiculed because you made a mistake ?

HRH Prince Harry, heir apparent, made a very ill advised choice of clothing. Thats it. Clothing. He wasn't frog marching to the tune of Deutchland, Deutchland Uber Alle, he wasnt professing to be a nazi. No slogans like 'Hitler was right'. Nothing, a poor choice of clothing. A costume.

I would ask you to think about that. Imagine if everything you did was open to scrutiny by the press, imagine if the only thing that got publiscised was the errors you made.

Give the lad a break and stop critiscising him on forums like this. If only in memory of his mother, Princess Diana.

Discussions on Mudcat are nothing if not colorful, particularly so when a poster mixes history and humor (hyperbole?)

It's true that several of his supporters suggested to Washington (Barrie Roberts--22 Jan 2005 3:19 PM) that he become king, though to say that all "Colonial America" agreed is perhaps stretching it a bit. In fact, as a unit, "Colonial America" hardly agreed on anything, which is one of the reason for the elaborate system of checks and balances, which presidents have, with varying degrees of success, been trying to get around ever since.

It's less clear that Charles Stuart was ever offered the crown of "Colonial America"--he had, after all, been leading a progressively more unsavory life in exile after Culloden for about 40 years.

If this allegation is indeed not meant as humor, I would like more details--source of this info, exactly who offered Charles Stuart this crown, etc. Otherwise this sounds like fodder for Snopes.

Charles Stuart may have been offered the chance to trade a Roman exile for an American one--though even this is dubious--the Federalists didn't even want to receive captured Irish nationalists when the British suggested this (they got to the US anyway).

I'd be interested in further details.

Unless, of course, the whole thing is meant humorously--I assure you I'm trying to develop a finely honed sense of irony,

Which is what Rosa Parks refused to do. As a matter of law, she was supposed to move farther back in order to let a white have her seat. When the bus driver told her to move, she refused and was arrested. And that's where the US civil rights movement began.

Sounds like you've swallowed the propaganda, jacqui, as the whole sycophantic nation did until fairly recent years (steered by what was a thoroughly sycophantic press). Try reading Kitty Kelley's book on the Royals. Much better researched than most of the hagiographical rubbish on the subject that preceded it. Apart from anything else, you will surprised at the number of intimates who have blabbed confidences. Betrayers and betrayed alike emerge as a thoroughly unpleasant set.

So--what is it---rulers that don't rule. Why keep the wealthy so and so's on?   History has passed the era of the kings---though I still like Henry V as portrayed by Shakespeare.   Sure gave it to the French--love the difference in Olivier's interpration of that compared to Branaugh----I think Branaugh's was better and more real.

I digress.

You pay taxes, they live high off the hog and contribute nothing but some tradition that left the world stage a century ago---what is left are the likes of a "clown prince" aka frat boy.

Having said all of the above I add that in WW2 I was in the group of children evacuated from London and Princess (then) Eliz. saw us little kiddies off with our gas masks at Victoria Station---but, Winnie was the man who galvanized the nation and the world.

So--Royalty. What is the point anymore? For humor (houmour) maybe. Alas poor Yorrick---they are now the court jesters. Your job is over.

Not wishing to waste much time, effort, breath, life etc on this discussion (?) I would merely add a few observations:

1. Colonial America was so appalled by living under a monarchy that, when it tried to free itself, it offered a Kingship to a bloke called George Washington. When he turned it down (was it twice or three times?) they offered it to Charles Stuart, the Jacobite pretender to the British throne. When he turned it down they gave up and reluctantly became a republic;

2. Our beloved Royal family are indeed of partly German descent, but also are descended from llewellyn of Wales, and that should be good enough for anybody;

3. Thank God for the internet, so that all those rational people whose contributions I have read above cannot actually get at each other to break heads, lergs, bottles, windows etc.

4.   If Britain ever makes the mistake of becoming a republic, it will find out to its cost what happens when you have a head of state who is a politician.

That's all --- you can carry on shouting now.

I think the Royal family did allow themselves to be driven off to Windsor, at least some nights, but they refused to be stowed away in Canada even when invasion seemed imminent. The rationing bit is quite true - the King had a black line painted in the inside of all the palace baths to ensure no-one used up too much hot water.

At least they didn't allow themselves to be moved to a place of safety - I'm not sure that the present lot would follow that example though. And I can't see W or Blair behaving in that way either.

Gibson, your Presidents may last only two terms, but then you infallibly elect another fuckwit every time! The only difference is that our royal fuckwits come and go but have no executive power, and thus can safely be ignored. Meanwhile they prevent politicians getting their sticky hands on uncontrolled political power and those of us who enjoy it (far more than will admit to doing so)gain a real pleasure from the marvellous pomp and ceremony - (saw your monkey being 'inaugurated' - today - is THAT what you call a state occasion? Come over and see how the grown-ups do it!) As a bonus, now and then the system throws up a leader of real worth - both Elizabeths for example. In dicey circumstances such as a major world war even distictly third-rate monarchs, such as George VI can play a useful role as a focus for national unity.

And Martin claimed equivalency between the US President and our Queen - he, and you, are wrong, she does not have the powers that a President of the US has, in fact nowadays she does not even have the power of veto over Acts of Parliament. Her position is merely one of 'advisor' to the government which, in practical terms, means she has no power at all. She's a rubber stamp on the papers the government put before her.

The US constitution provides for an individual with Presidential powers, the UK constitution does not.

No he isn't comparing apples to oranges. The titular figurehead of a nation is still a political position, even without a lot of political power.

While it is true the royals don't have much political power vis a vis the parliamentary side of government, they and the hereditary peerage do still have political power.

Americans here choosing to voice their opinions on the actions of Prince Harry are in no way being "anti-British" or racist, any more than British citizens here expressing their opinion of George Bush or John Kerry (for instance) should be considered anti-American or racist.

Racism doesn't exist in a context of nation states. So that one is just plain stupid. Races of people are not equivalent to the citizens of national states, so any suggestion that a person is racist for being anti-British is just plain ridiculous.

But what does it matter now anyway? He's gotten away with it, hasn't he? He'll pay no consequence for his actions, he is a royal. In fact, I'm guessing Harry is already holding court again in the basement club Charles had built to keep Harry out of the eyes of the public and paparazzi.

Any bets on whether Harry behaves until he reports to Sandhurst?

Martin, our Queen is not our leader. Her function is not presidential - she is simply a figurehead, a symbol. The UK political system does not mirror the US system, and she has no political function whatsoever, unlike that dickhead in the White House. You're comparing apples with oranges and claiming they're the same fruit. Wrong again Moriarty.

Your ridiculous monarchy continues to keep your country in the middle ages and is only good for tourism at this point.
