Thread Name: Origin: The Bastard King of England
Subject: RE: author, bastard king of england Kipling?
Slightly off-topic, but Vic Gammon wrote his own version...

Now William III was a protestant and Dutchman and James I was a Scot
And George I spoke nothing else but German, what a mixed-up, inter-bred lot.
And William I was a grasping Norman bastard, believe me, it's no lie.
Well there hasn't been an English king of England since Harold got one in the eye.
Singing Rule Britannia, Britannia waives the rules
Kings, Queens, Jacks and Knaves and tyrants, cheats and fools.
