For my head on a silver plate
Just a puppet on a lonely string
Oh who would ever want to be king?
It is currently Fall 2011.
The Sulgrave family has been the ruling power of Britain for nearly three hundred and twenty five years.
Things have changed since then, yet if you're talking of government, in only minor ways. What was once an absolute monarchy is in name only a constitutional monarchy, but those constitutional parameters range far and wide. There's a Prime Minister, there's a Parliament, but they are not effectively in power. The king holds the country in his hands...but he wants nothing to do with the power he holds. Who knows how long the arrangement will last. Other families are jockeying for power, along with those in the government that barely functions at all. They all have their reasons--personal or not--to want the system overthrown. But will it happen?

"All power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men, even when they exercise influence and not authority: still more when you superadd the tendency or certainty of corruption by full authority. There is no worse heresy than that the office sanctifies the holder of it."
