Asked by Hugh Luettgen in Royal Family, England

Why did Prince Harry and Meghan Markle quit the royal family?

User Avatar
Prince Harry and Meghan quit their roles as senior royals primarily because they wanted to be financially independent and because of their frustration with their treatment in British tabloids. From Harry’s statements, it seems they were envisioning a rather loose arrangement in which their lives weren’t publicly funded, but they could still partake in charity activities as emissaries of the queen. Instead, the break from Buckingham Palace seems to be a rather harsh one. Their exact roles and titles are still in flux, but what is for sure is that they’re no longer allowed to use the highly-exclusive “His Royal Highness” or “Her Royal Highness” titles, and Harry will also give up his military titles.

What would be the American equivalent of a 1.2 LTR car in England?

User Avatar
Using the conversion factor of 16.387cc=1CI, we come up with a displacement of 73.22 cubic inches. Most American cars are quoted in liters these days (5.7 liter mustang) so a 1.2 liter would be a 1.2 liter. same amount of displacement. I don't think any American car has an engine this small. Although there are European and Asian imports in that range. Most big Japanese motorcycles top out at about 1.2 liters (1200cc), although 1300cc is not unheard of. I think the smallest car you can get in America is the Smart Car, which has a 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine, but it's made by Daimler AG in Germany.

Asked in Ancient History, England, Stonehenge

Where is Stonehenge?

User Avatar
Stonehenge is in the county of Wiltshire on Salisbury Plain. It's just west of Amesbury in England and is visible from the A303 road. The nearest city is Salisbury a few miles to the south. There are many Neolithic earthwork enclosures known as "henges" in Britain. Few have any stones set within them and "Stonehenge" is by far most elaborate and is the only structure known to have employed lintels. Stone Henge is located in the continent of Europe and in the country of England. stone Henge is located in Wiltshire, England. The Stone Henge is in Europe.

Who was the first King or Queen of England?

User Avatar
The first king to rule all of England as king was Athelstan, grandson of Alfred the Great. His forebears were kings of Wessex, to which they attached Kent; it was Athelstan who united Mercia and Northumbria to Wessex to create the united English kingdom. However, there are a few tricky points of terminology: Athelstan's title was "king of the English", not "king of England". Same thing really, but the first to be king of the English land rather than of the English people was Henry II. Before there was a single kingdom, several rulers had be accepted as overlord over all the English kings. Among those was Alfred the Great's grandfather Egbert, king of Wessex, and before him Offa, King of Mercia House of Wessex: Egbert Athelwulf Athelbald Athelbert Ethelred I Alfred (the Great) Edward (the Elder) Athelstan *First King of ALL England* Edmund I (the Elder, the Deed-Doer) Eadred Eadwig Edgar (the Peaceable) St Edward (the Martyr) Ethelred II (the Unready) House of Denmark: Swen (Forkbeard) House of Wessex Ethelred II (restored) Edmund II (Ironside) House of Denmark Cnut the Great (Canute) Harold I (Harefoot) Harthacnut House of Wessex (restored) St Edward (The Confessor) Harold II Edgar II (the Atheling) House of Normandy: William I (the Bastard, the Conqueror) William II (Rufus) Henry I (Beauclerk) Stephen I (of Blois) or the Empress Mathilda (Maud) House of Plantaganet: Henry II (FitzEmpress, Curtmantle) (Henry the Young King, briefly co-king with his father, Henry II) Richard I (the Lionheart) John (Lackland) Henry III Edward I (Longshanks) Edward II Edward III Richard II House of Lancaster: Henry IV (Bolingbroke) Henry V Henry VI House of York: Edward IV House of Lancaster (restored) Henry VI (restored) House of York (restored) Edward IV (restored) Edward V Richard III House of Tudor: Henry VII Henry VIII Edward VI Jane Mary I (Bloody Mary) Elizabeth I (the Virgin Queen) House of Stuart James I & VI Charles I The Commonwealth The House of Stuart (restored) Charles II James II House of Stuart/House of Orange Mary II & William III House of Orange William III House of Stuart Anne House of Hanover George I George II George III George IV William IV Victoria House of Sax-Coburg-und-Gotha Edward VII George V House of "Windsor" George V Edward VIII George VI Elizabeth II
