All Hail King Allan I

A man from Denver says he is the rightful King of England. Seems perfectly legit to me.

A few years ago I did see a very persuasive piece of investigative journalism that gave a very good account of itself to 'prove' that a farm owner in Australia was the legal king of England. They produced some fairly convincing evidence that some time around Henry Third and Henry eighth, I can't recall any better than that, there was some dodgy doings in the royal bedchamber and one of the descendants actually wasn't. In practice nothing will change. Thems that got it usually manage to keep it.

No, really? And there was me thinking he was actually going to be King.

Of course the line has several weak links. Williamandmary, Henry VII, William all took the throne by force from those with far better claims if blood lines were all that mattered.

Allan would need to mount a successful invasion. To do this my history book tells me he would need to land on the Isle of Thanet.

I think the line of Burnum Burnum has the most legitimacy.

He may be best remembered for planting the Aboriginal flag on the white cliffs of Dover on the Australian Bicentenary Day of 26 January 1988. This was his tongue-in-cheek way of claiming England, as Arthur Phillip had done to Burnum Burnum's homeland in 1788 when arriving with the First Fleet
