Graham Allen MP argues that powers vested in the monarch but exercised by Ministers without a legal need for Parliamentary approval are an anachronism and that: “Only by introducing a written constitution will it be possible fully to establish the principle that the executive derives all its powers from the people, and that it is accountable to them and their representatives for the way it uses them”.< Less

Alfred's reputation was of a learned and merciful man who encouraged education, improved his kingdom's legal system and military structure. Following the example of Charlemagne, Alfred established a court school for the education of his own children, those of the nobility, and "a good many of lesser birth".

More > the fifth and last monarch of the Tudor dynasty. Elizabeth's reign is known as the Elizabethan era, famous above all for the flourishing of English drama, led by playwrights such as William Shakespeare and Christopher Marlowe, and for the seafaring prowess of English adventurers such as Francis Drake.

That sad tale ends with Charles I’s public execution, and the imprisonment or exile in France of his family. Charles II’s reign was marked by a series of major foreign and domestic political upheavals, which, despite their gravity, amazingly do nothing to shake the monarchy’s position in society. This was the time of the Great Fire of London, the worst outbreak ever of the plague, and of the Second Anglo-Dutch war—and of continuing religious conflict between Catholics and Protestants. harles’s personal life inspired his nickname of the “Merry Monarch”—an understated reference to the debauchery of the court.< Less
