The great amaranthine royalty of Aquitaine... ..who forged this land from barbarian hordes and made it noble and pure! Who gave it order, meaning, and even faith... to thousands of years of loyal subjects! And it is all now questioned by you! And we are forced to sign your precious Magna Carta, forced by you, a wool merchant! I am the blood! I am God's right hand! And you will never dictate to me how I am to be a king!

Sir Winston Churchill

It is arguably the very origins of modernity. That is something we should celebrate, not be ashamed of.
