if they remove the ban on Roman Catholics, than the Stuarts can come forward with more of a pressing case that they, not the Hanoverian Windsors, are the true heirs. The Stuarts were removed from the throne for being Roman Catholics ruling a predominantly Protestant nation with the Glorious Revolution of 1688.
The indignity of it all ... can you imagine, if a throne eligible royal could be allowed to marry a Catholic
... a "law-suit" going all the way up to (or starting? at) the "House of Lords" to resolve 316 years of an error-prone rule !!!!!!!!!
I was just quoting the facts King Christian--not passing judgement.

of course William is going to fall in love with a Catholic girl, just like he's in love with girls from the Dutch Reformed Church and local gals from Africa with their local religions.

Not offended King Christian--just thought that you believed I was passing judgment on it all. I was just trying to state the facts as I know them to be to the best of my knowledge.

Now, since you have started this conversation , Tell me why you talk about 316 years of misrule?? I love a good conversation!!! :P :woot:

.. well, if (some of) the lower courts and the House of Lords found in favour of the Stuarts, then the actions/rule of the Windsors would be ?????

Who is the Stuart line ?

How prominent are they in English society today?

The Stuart line came to the throne in 1603 upon the death of Queen Elizabeth I. King James VI of Scotland was a cousin of the Queen and nearest blood relation. King Henry VII's daughter, Margaret, married into the Scottish royal family and this passed down to Mary, Queen of Scots, and her son, James VI of Scotland.

The Stuart line in Britain officially "ended" in 1714 with the death of Queen Anne. However, Queen Anne had a half brother who was Roman Catholic. The British people did not want a Catholic monarch and that was the reason her father, James II was dethroned during the Glorious Revolution of 1688 after the birth of a son. Many stories were made up that the baby was not the King and Queen's and had been smuggled into the birthing chamber in a bedwarmer. This is the reason there have been witnesses at every royal birth until George VI revoked it in 1948.

Anne's brother was the legitimate heir, but being Catholic, he was barred from the succession and the Hanoverians were called to the British throne. Their claim came from the Electress Sophia of Hanover, whose mother was a British Princess.

The Stuarts made attempts to reclaim the throne in the 1700's but were defeated by George I and George II of England.

Today, you don't hear much of the Stuarts. If anyone has any information, please add it to my posting. Thank you.

I'm guessing there was some inbreeding going on. :stuart:

Then I guess the government will wish it had done something about the Act of Settlement before being backed into a corner.

It beggars belief that William would have to give up his position in the line of succession if he wanted to marry a Catholic, but he could marry a Satanist with no problem (as far as that particular Act was concerned, at any rate).

If they&#39;re going to have an Established Church, they should require that he marry a member of that church, since she&#39;d be crowned by the Archbishop in a C of E coronation. There&#39;s no reason to discriminate only against one branch of Christianity; in this day and age, when the monarch&#39;s religion doesn&#39;t affect people like it did back in the 17th century and earlier, it&#39;s an insult.

Well, unless Parliament decides to change the law banning British Royals who marry Catholics to keep their place in the line of succession, then you are not going to see any new Catholic blood through William&#39;s line. I highly doubt he will fall in love with a Catholic girl because he knows that he can not marry a Catholic girl and be king at the same time, and he has come out and said he wishes to do his duty and be king. Now, if the girl he wishes to marry is Catholic, she can always convert and become Anglican and everything will be fine, whether she will be willing to do this is another story. Yet, unless that law is changed (I think it it"s a stupid law, but it&#39;s not high on Parliament&#39;s list to get rid of the law) I doubt William will marry a Catholic girl.

And to answer the question for which the thread is named, if William marries a Catholic girl, and she doesn&#39;t convert and become Protestant, then William wont be king.

i agree with A.C.C.&#33;

I wanted William to become KING&#33; i dont wanted girls who are catholic get married at him like it&#33; because he is church of England because his grandmother the HM Queen is head of state and church of England but he still as future King of England after his dad and his grandmum.

That will last about as long as Bush on Jeopardy. As soon as Queenie kicks the bucket, the royals will have to resign from being the heads of the Church of England.

It has lasted longer than Bush on Jeopardy (what hasn&#39;t ). The British Monarch has been head of the Church of England for over 500 years since Henry VIII. The British Monarch can&#39;t just "resign" from that job or rather postion, although i do see what you are saying. It would have to take an act of Parliament to remove the British monarch as head of the Church of England. Yet that idea is more than a simple political issue, it would drastically change the Church of England and the way it operates (even though the monarch is head of the church symbolically).

I must say though Grecka that you have some of the funniest posts and you make reading them enjoyable&#33;
