The Real King of England
A NSW man has been identified as the rightful King of England by a leading historian.
Medieval scholar, Dr Michael Jones says he can prove Queen Elizabeth’s claim to the throne is illegitimate and it should belong to Michael Abney-Hastings.
British-born Mr Abney-Hastings, who moved to southern NSW as a teenager, is the subject of a British documentary.
Mr Jones, one of Britain’s leading historians, believes he has proved through painstaking research that the Royal Family’s right to rule is based on a lie.
He says King Edward IV, who reigned from 1461 to 1483, was not of royal blood; he was the illegitimate son of a French archer.
Sitting in his home in Jerilderie, 640km southwest of Sydney, in a T-shirt and shorts with a can of beer after a hard day at the wheel of a forklift truck, is the man who it is claimed should by rights be King Michael I of England.
I think it would be great if Mr Abney-Hastings was accepted as the real king of England. At last, there would be a British royal who has actually had a decent day’s work in their life.
