In reply to: Curnoack. 's message, "Not the Real Royals" on 05:44:23 01/08/05 Sat
There is no perfect Royal Line from which the Monarch is meant to be descended. There never has been. The Crown has never been passed on purely on the basis of primogeniture, has it? It has often been passed on as a result of battle (Richard III), conquest (WIlliam I, William and Mary), abdication (George V) and murder.
This is really pretty irrelevant, because once someone is legally crowned, the crown technically belongs to them and their direct descendents until such time as parliament decides otherwise, so no-one has a greater claim to the Crown than the current monarch.
