The U.K. rewrites succession laws
The U.K. has changed it succession policy for the first time in over three hundred years. Now, the first born royal child, regardless of gender, will be heir to the throne. Huzzah. Mandates from Heaven have never looked so sexy.
Interesting Note: In my current campaign of Empire: Total War, the reign of Queen Catharine led my glorious British army to conquer first the retched Catholics, then India, then squash the puny United States before marching from France to Western Russia. Under her successor, King Richard, I lost most of those gains. Can I haz my Queen back?
