An excellent point, Lewis, with just two minor flaws. One, we've already had a William IV, and two, we've already had a William IV. I know that, technically speaking, this is only one flaw, but I thought it was such a big one that it was worth mentioning twice.

Good God. Forgot about him. Queen Victoria's uncle of course.

Please forgive me, it is Friday night after all. :wink:

You could even argue that William IV was German! Though the Hanoverians were around for quite a while...

In fact, don't some people in this country consider the Royal Family German (albeit Diana was more English)? It's rather diluted blood-wise by now.
