Without any doubt: Barack Obama and George H.W. Bush because these two presidents were closest to what Europeans consider as standard norms and values on society, policy and personality. I would have enlisted Bill Clinton here, was he not so tarnished later in his presidency.

exploring three possible lines of succession if George Washington had become the first king instead of first president of the United States of America.

What do all of you consider the most likely line of succession?

Following a point of divergence in the timeline (as alternate history writers say), a new timeline arises. In this case, the descendants of King George I of the Washington dynasty are not guaranteed to be the same persons as the descendants of President George Washington in our timeline, so your question is impossible to answer.

Of course, as is acknowledged by the creator of the video. However, what do you think would be the most likely successor for George Washington himself: his adopted son, his nephew by his elder half-brother Augustine, his nephew by his younger brother John - or, one that I would add: his nephew by his younger brother Samuel?

In such a scenario, might the US have an elective monarchy similar to the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth or present-day Cambodia? If so, then presumably the American nobles would have chosen a new monarch after George Washington's death--and not necessarily from his George Washington's family. Rather, it could have been some member of the American nobility being chosen to be the new US monarch after George Washington's death. Thomas Jefferson, perhaps? Or James Madison? Or John Adams? Or even some "dark horse" candidate?

Quite amazing, when you think about it! Queen Elizabeth II was already reigning back when Harry Truman was US President! In fact, she has literally seen a whopping 14 US Presidents during her reign!

I really can’t see America becoming a monarchy at any moment. Not only is its government system rooted in rebellion against the prevailing system, but nowadays monarchy carries connotations of nepotism and privilege, which reeks of stagnation at best and regression at worst. Sure it’s fun to imagine a scenario where American Royals is a reality, but that comes across as wishful thinking that ignores the challenges real royals face. Even the abundance of various prominent families doesn’t help. Should America change its government type, I’d say it’ll go for a parliamentary republic instead.
