Define England =)

The HRE fell in the early 1806 during the Napoleanic wars and it wasn't long after if not already that the English kings and queens held very little if any actual power in the government.

Through out history The British Isles have been divided into seperate kingdoms on numerous occasions including main land "England"

She has always been troubled nation =)

She went through a period known as the British Empire however to my knowledge I don't believe the monarchy ever took on title of Emperor.

On top of that I don't believe she is technically called a monarchy anymore... She is more along the lines of a parliamentory republic which still has a royal family but is not technically a ruling body in any way shape or form.

That is a vague question but I will just leave it at false =)

:laugh:

False, the Anglo Saxon Kings Native to England were overturned by Danes in the East, and Normans in the South and Vikings from the North. In order to settle Treaties and Wars later English Monarchs married into the families of Continental Europe, Spain, France etc. Not to mention Scotland and Ireland.

Finally after the Civil War and Republic the Monarchy was restored, and finally branched into a Germanic Monarchy...which changed its name be depoll during the gap between World Wars from Saxe-Coburg, to Windsor.

However, since the Romans left, the British Isles has never been Rulled from abroad, without the invaders keeping the British Throne intact (UNLIKE the Scotish throne)

True...although in the middle ages long after Rome, the Roman Catholics occasionally gave the title of Emporar out to various important people and Monarchs...and some of them may have been English :laugh:

The answer is False. Pope Adrian IV, born as Nicholas Breakspear, was an Englishman. He was only Pope for about 5 years I think. Oh, and he's the only Englishman to be the Pope.

I was hoping you would be the one to respond. It's a tough one :)

Hmmmmmmm, were the Anglo Saxons native, they were imposters at one time as welll!!!!!!!!

Furthermore, William was a legitimate succesor from Emma who married both Æthelred II, and King Cnut. She was the daughter of Richard (I), count of Rouen (d. 996), and of Richard's second wife, Gunnor (d. 1031), herself of Norman stock and Danish origin; she was thus the sister of Richard (II), duke of Normandy (d. 1026), and of Robert, archbishop of Rouen from 989 to 1037.

So from Richard she linked in with William and so thats why he claimed succession so maybe it was just a continuation. Papal backed as well i might add.

Harold was a perjurer!

The Neutral Republic of Eire refused to allow the entry of any Jewish Refugees displaced by the Germanic Holocuast :ninja:

FALSE
Unfortunately true. Eire allowed in Nazi war criminals in during the late forties and fifties, and they refused entry to Jews, so often that some of the children had to almost hide their identity to get into the country "Refugee Children" were allowed in, "Refugee Jewish Children" were not.

Remember, to this day Eire remains staunchly Catholic, and the Evil Pope sided with Hitler who used the guise of Roman Catholicism in order to murder the Jews.

It is False

Barack Obama flew in 100 more personnel then the Constructors of Tower Bridge Employed.

As far as I'm aware...something like Tower Bridge 400.....Barack Obama plus 500 staff, his own aircraft, his own car, his own helicopter et al ad infinitum...here's hoping they arent discussing either the economy or the environment at G20 :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

One only wonders how many he will send to Normandy for that celebration. If Barack Obama equals 500 americans....what does Barack Obama plus an unspecified formal dellegation of Representatives add up to.... LMAO
