7 Creepy Facts about the Royal Families
The premise upon which justification for the existence of royal families is founded, is an inherent superiority over the other citizens of a particular place.
Alleged inherent superiority to the rest of the people living in a particular area: at some point in history, people with more hunger for power than others somehow convinced everybody else that this is how it should be.
All kinds of tabloid pieces of media circulate about the royal families, but few of them examine anything of substance. Here are 7 creepy facts about the European nobility.
1. EUROPEAN NOBILITY ALMOST ALWAYS BELONGS TO OTHER FRATERNAL ORDERS AND SECRET SOCIETIES
Ever heard of the “Order of Charles XIII”? Neither had I, until I learned that a lot of Europe is still under control of monarchies.
The Order of Charles XIII is a freemasonic order, that the King of Sweden is by default the leader of. It was founded in 1811 by the man the order was named for. It’s an order that is over 200 years old, a quick and not even that extreme example of how power is passed down.
Basically all the European monarchies have this bizarre thing where the royal family members belong to all kinds of other fraternal orders and semi-secret societies. To get a grasp of what they actually teach or do in these orders, you’d probably have to belong to this family.
Wikipedia is a decent place to garner a bit of info about the Order of Charles XIII:
“The Lord and Master of the Order is the King of Sweden, currently His Majesty King Carl XVI Gustaf. Membership of the order can only be conferred on Freemasons of the Protestant faith. The membership of the order comprises:
Three clerical members, invariably priests or bishops of the Church of Sweden.
Thirty lay members and never more than seven non-Swedish members, each holding the XI (honorary and highest) degree of the Swedish Rite of Freemasonry.
All princes of the Royal House of Sweden are members from birth, but can not wear the insignia unless they are Knights and Commanders Red Cross of the Swedish Order of Freemasons. (Hence the insignia is not worn by His Majesty and His Royal Highness the Duke of Värmland, who are both Knights of the Order from birth).
Foreign princes of Blood Royal may be admitted as honorary members, if they are also senior Freemasons, whether of the Swedish Order or another; they are full members of the Order, but do not count towards its membership limits; HRH Prince Edward, Duke of Kent (United Kingdom) was admitted to the Order on 6 November 2000.”
An entire world of info previously unknown to most people about the behavior of royal people can be garnered from that Wikipedia excerpt alone. People don’t think the Freemasons are a powerful force? Royalty sure seems to find them important (note not all sects of Freemasonry are the same).
2. THEY ALL WEAR THE SAME SYMBOLS, ACROSS VARIOUS HOUSES AND COUNTRIES
Why do all the European nobility seem to wear 8 pointed stars, or Templar Cross symbols?
Perhaps this is explainable by the ignorance of this author to what they mean, but if I’m reading this correctly, it seems that it’s an inside joke and these people have a meaning for these symbols that we don’t really get to know.
3. SEEMINGLY PEACEFUL COUNTRIES ARE MILITARILY CONTROLLED STILL BY A MONARCHY
Who controls the armed forces of Norway? King Harald V, he is the commander in chief. In Libya, Norwegian fighters trying to destroy the regime of Gaddafi along with the West and NATO had bombed the very most targets in proportion to number of planes involved, along with the Danish fighters led by another monarchy.
Who controls the armed forces of Denmark? Queen Margrethe II. €120 million EUR was spent by the regime fighting to destroy the regime in Libya, and they participated in the warfare with six F-16AM fighters, corresponding “ground crews” and a C-130J-30 Super Hercules military transport plane. Four of those 4-16’s were used for operations on the offensive.
These seemingly peaceful, quiet countries are still ruled by monarchies, and throughout history to the present day, monarchies have waged warfare. If a conflict were to ever erupt in Syria and NATO pursued it, you can bet all the European monarchies would join in on the warfare.
4. THEY USED TO BE CANNIBALS
As late as the end of the 18th Century, the British royal family was known to consume human flesh, as admitted by the UK mainstream media.
A book authored on the topic of “medicinal cannibalism” (sounds pretty horrible and false to me that it could be “medicinal”), seems to provide sufficient evidence for the mainstream to report that at the end of the 1700’s, the British nobility were openly practicing cannibalism like it was some delicacy to consume other people.
According to the Daily Mail:
“Even as they denounced the barbaric cannibals of the New World, they applied, drank, or wore powdered Egyptian mummy, human fat, flesh, bone, blood, brains and skin.
Moss taken from the skulls of dead soldiers was even used as a cure for nosebleeds, according to Dr Richard Sugg at Durham University.
Dr Sugg said: ‘The human body has been widely used as a therapeutic agent with the most popular treatments involving flesh, bone or blood.”
People don’t know this, but power as a cultural feature is toxic. If a particular group of people were to maintain power, a sense of superiority, and a military might for centuries upon centuries in what is basically an echo chamber, they would probably spoil into a very rotten group of people.
It’s only natural to think that a royal family would enjoy preying upon other people to the point of literally eating human flesh. That sounds extreme, but have you ever heard of the Stanford Prison Experiment? Imagine that times a million and that’s the concept of nobility.
