Does your royal family have a last name? It can't just be Prince Charles and Queen Elizabeth and a string of first names with tagged-on nths to identify how original the name was, right? Can it? Am I to assume they are all Tudors? Or is Tudor not a last name but, like. A place of birth or something?ETA:
Windsor! It wasn't in Wikipedia when I checked, but it doesn't mean it isn't somewhere
. :| :P
I don't even know why I started wondering, but I am
direly uneducated and need immediate rectification. Will a Brit please educate me? Like, about the whole monarchy system thing.
In other news, did you know
that in France, women who wanted their marriages annulled used to bring matters to court, charging their husbands with impotence, so that the only recourse would be for the husband to prove in court
that he was not impotent, and so therefore, as part of the court proceedings
, masturbate in front of a so-called team of experts?
Of course, hardly (haha, no pun intended :|) anyone would actually be able to do that
, so husbands who didn't want the humiliation that came with being proven to have a flaccid penis would demand a Trial by Congress, which is, essentially, a live show. Husband and wife had to show up at a ~neutral~ spot, and perform the act in front of the ~experts~, and there must be sufficient proof that they ejaculated, too.
I don't know how they thought that would help. :|
Let that sink in for a bit, and then I'll return to this wonderful, glorious, fantastically hysterical
historical book.PS. It's Napoleon's Privates. Tell your friends. :|
