This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle, This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars, This other Eden, demi-paradise, This fortress built by Nature for herself Against infection and the hand of war, This happy breed of men, this little world, This precious stone set in the silver sea, Which serves it in the office of a wall Or as a moat defensive to a house, Against the envy of less happier lands,-- This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England. ~~William Shakespeare, Richard III

Favorite English King Poll Results!!

Polls are so much fun! Thank you to everyone who voted in this one; it was close until the very end! Here are the results!

Richard III, youngest brother of Edward IV, uncle to the Princes in the Tower, and formerly Duke of Gloucester, won with six votes (I guess the Tudor propaganda isn't sticking so much anymore!).

Charles II came in second to Richard with three votes. He came close to taking the lead at one point!

Medieval kings Henry II, Richard I, Edward II, and Henry V, and the ever dramatic Henry VIII all gathered one vote a piece.

Poor charismatic and carousing Edward IV didn't get a single vote; I guess he's not as attractive to the ladies these days!

Thank you to everyone! I should have a new poll up at the beginning of the week so stay on the lookout!
