King Charles Invokes Medieval Law to Make Huge Profits

Many would and have claimed that King Charles III is bringing England up to date, as his style of rule doesn’t follow the traditions of his late mother Queen Elizabeth. But if we look a little closer, it seems he may be taking the country back to Medieval times – at least when it comes to how he’s increasing his wealth.

It’s called the Duchy of Lancaster. According to the Duchy website, this is the hereditary estate of the monarch, which “began in 1265, when Henry III gifted the baronial lands of Simon de Montfort to his son Edmund.”

The next year, the Earl of Derby, Robert Ferrers’s estate, was added to Edmund’s holdings.

Some 700 years later, similar properties and assets are still being added to that inheritance.

This has all been discovered by The Guardian, who had investigated the ancient feudal law known as bona vacantia and Charles’ recent acceptance of the process.

As the Guardian notes, Charles has acquired “tens of millions of pounds” under this rule, each time only adding to his own personal wealth.

So how does it work?

Well, basically, the Duchy is taking assets and properties of the recently deceased who have either no will or no next of kin.

As I mentioned before, this is an ancient tradition that began when most of North West England was under the control of the Duchy of Lancaster and its dukes. Today, the king has apparently chosen to still use this process, adding a little more to his own estate with each passing Englishman within the modern-day boundaries of Lancashire, Cumbria, Cheshire, Merseyside, and Greater Manchester.

Now, of course, the Duchy claims that when residents of these areas die without a will or next of kin, and the assets are liquidated, most of it ends up donated to charities.

But as the Guardian found out, only about 15 percent usually make it to charity.

The rest is being secretly used to upgrade the already elaborate holdings of King Charles. Farms, commercial buildings, holiday homes, etc., are all being outfitted with new roofs, boilers, windows, and more.

Welcome back to Medieval times, where the king gets all the spoils…
