If George Washington had been King who would be the living heir? Newsweek has a story this week about the Texan who would have been in line.

I think that "King Bushrod Washington II" has kind of a ring to it, don't you?

Who knows? There might have been a few times between 1935 and 1997 where "King Larry Washington" might have done a better job than the "pretenders to the throne" did while they were in office...

One problem I see is that this article assumes there would've been no bumps along the road of American monarchy. Y'know, the kinda bumps where heads seperate from necks?

Good point but at least the genealogy is accurate. I find it interesting to know what the descendents of the famous are doing. In 1960 I knew an electric meter reader who was the great grandson of the Kaiser Wilhelm. Plus I meet a 50 year old pizza delivery guy who was the grandson of a U.S. president. So much for good genes.
