And that is discounting the people living in the Commonwealth states like Canada, Australia, New Zealand, etc.

Still want to take over the British Monarchy now?
What do you mean 'take over'?

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Well I've heard that most European monarchs are distantly related due to intermarriage for alliances or whatnots. Just remember, you cannot be Catholic, which most of central and western Europe are...

House Windsor was originally House Saxe-Coburg-Gotha.

King George V replaced the German-sounding title with that of Windsor during the First World War. The name Saxe-Coburg-Gotha survived in other European monarchies, including the current Belgian Royal Family and the former monarchies of Portugal and Bulgaria.

And also a bastard. You cannot be Catholic or a bastard to inherit the throne.
But this does leave an interesting question. If all the members of the legitimate bloodlines are dead, then would the throne now go to the Catholic/Illegitimate bloodlines?

That is Belgian, not German. The ones whose flag is a 90 degrees rotated German flag and that everyone in France hates (even the Legionnaires) because they tried to copy French maid costume design.

Then again speaking, most of Western Europe came from Saxon clans that were formed during the Ice Age which then descended into the Medieval times. So genetically speaking, they are all related, and anyone can vie for the Brit Crown?

Illegitimate first, then Catholic. Apparently they don't like the Romans.

But wasn't Belgium (or at least part of it) part of France to begin with ?

If I'm not mistaken, the British king/queen is supposed to be head of the Church of England, so I can see why being a Catholic would not be appropriate.

It's a fair bit more complicated then that.

It started with Henry VIII, the second monarch of the Tudor dynasty. He desperately needed a male heir to secure his family's rule and couldn't get the Pope to annul his first marriage to Catherine of Aragon. That eventually led to England's secession from the Catholic Church, allowing Henry VIII to divorce Catherine and marry Anne Boleyn (who, in any case, also failed to produce a son and was eventually executed for alleged treason).

The other reason was that Henry VIII needed a prodigious amount of funds to finance his wars in France, and a good deal of that money came from the seizure of monastic lands and possessions after England's separation from the Catholic Church.

Whatever the immediate reasons for the split, the long-term effect was that ordinary English became comfortable with being Protestant. It suited the nation's long-standing preference for independence from the European continent. This independent streak was further reinforced by the attempted invasion of England by the fervently Catholic Philip II of Spain, culminating in the disastrous loss of the Spanish Armada in 1588.

There's nothing like the threat of attack by a foreigner to boost nationalism at home. Protestantism became a badge of English pride and identity.

Here some more clarification about the whole thing. Henry VIII first wife, Catherine of Aragon, had five miscarriages and one daughter surviving, the future Queen Mary. Believing God was punishing him since she was his older brother's wife Arthur before he died, he demanded that their marriage be annulled possibly because there was no chance Catherine at her age will be able to give birth to a son. Unfortunately, Catherine was a stubborn as she not only refused the annulment but also refuse to retire and become a Nun.

Henry VIII sought the Pope's help to annul his marriage since years earlier Henry denounce the German Protestant movement which the Pope gave him the title "Defender of the Faith" for a being a faithful Catholic. The Pope could solve the problem in an instance if it wasn't for one person, Holy Roman Emperor Charles V.

Charles was Catherine's nephew and had recently conquered Rome and made the Pope his hostage. The Pope was now in a difficult situation since if he supported the annulment, he would pissed off Charles, and if he didn't, he would pissed off Henry. Not wishing to make an enemy with both sides, the Pope just decide to play the waiting game, hoping whatever happens might be favorable. Unfortunately Henry wasn't patient and the Pope tried as much as he can to please him where he was willing to legitimatize his bastard son Henry Fitzroy as heir and allow him to marry his half-sister Mary to legitimatize the bloodline and please Catherine's family!

Before that could happen, Henry VIII was convince by scholars to separate the English Church from Rome on the grounds that Rome was corrupt. Despite this, Henry was still Catholic that the Church of England with himself as the head was a mixed of Catholic and Protestant Reformation where anyone that did not accept him as head of the Catholic Church or uses more Protestant practices that were un-catholic got executed.

No.

Until 1830, Belgium was part of The United Kingdom of The Netherlands and formed The Low Countries with Luxembourg and The Netherlands prior to Napoleon's invasion of Western Europe.

5 Myths You Probably Believe About Famous Landmarks:

"The whole point of landmarks is that they let you know at least one thing about a
place you've never been. Maybe you've never set foot in New York, but you know
you'll find the Statue of Liberty there, welcoming immigrants. Go to Stonehenge and
you'll find a bunch of rocks the ancient druids put there for some reason. But, as
with anything else we think we know, the most basic facts about famous landmarks
turn out to be mostly wrong."

6 Things Movies Get Wrong About Swords (An Inside Look):

"In fantasy novels and action movies, we like to see weapons at work but we
don't particularly care how they were created, sort of like sausage. We want to
see our protagonist double-wielding pistols while shooting holes in the faces of
their enemies, but we certainly don't need a whole montage on who handcrafted
those guns. Yet for some reason, swords are different. There's a special place in
our hearts for knowing exactly where and how each blade was forged before the
hero pokes someone with it. Some swords have even more elaborate origin
stories than the characters who wield them. All the stranger then, that no one
writing our favorite books and movies ever bothered to google how these
weapons are really made.

Chris Farrell, a bladesmith for 13 years and owner of Fearghal Blades in Austin
was kind enough to sit down with us at Cracked in what was likely the closest we
will ever get to actual journalism and explain why everything movies and novels
have taught us about making swords is complete bullshit."
