What's to say about royalty? Since I don't live in a country ruled by a royal lineage I don't know a lot about the system except that it cost Marie Antoinette her head and that it appears the royalty live a high lifestyle built on the backs of the poor. Certainly over and over again the common people have risen up and ousted their royal overlords. Doesn't seem like a good system (but then -what is?). No royalty in my family, but at least our heads are still attached.
