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!

There are only 7 days left to vote in my favorite king poll! Glance on over to my side bar and see which of those listed is your favorite.

Is your favorite the first Plantagenet king Henry II or his 'lionhearted,' crusading son Richard I? Maybe the warrior kings Edward III or Henry V? Perhaps you prefer the charismatic Edward IV or his much maligned brother Richard III? Maybe its the larger than life Henry VIII or Charles II?

Right now Richard III is in the lead with Charles II close behind! Make sure to cast your vote!


  1. Hard decision! Of the ones mentioned, I was torn between Edward III, Edward IV, and Charles II, but I ended up voting for Charles II in hopes that he would beat out Richard III! :)

  2. I have to admit, I only know who three of the kings are - looks like I need to do some research!

  3. Dolleygurl ~ Research is always fun!

    Susan ~ A knife through my heart! Lol!
