God save the king

 

Mike Hastings of Jerilderie,  a forklift driver by trade, passed away in Australia at the age of 71. According to British history, he could have sat on the royal throne instead of Queen Elizabeth II.

He was a descendant of England’s House of York, whose dynastic struggle with the House of Lancaster became known as the Wars of the Roses, dramatised by William Shakespeare.

The same old story, in-breading and illegitimate children and all other sorts of playing with the crown jewels.
