King George VII

So, Prince Charles is considering taking the throne name "George VII" when he becomes king. "Charles" has too many negative connotations apparently (King Charles I was beheaded; King Charles II was a joke; "King Charles III" aka Bonnie Prince Charlie was too Scottish).

Americans will, of course, remind the Prince of Wales of a King George who also comes with baggage: a mad king who lost a certain colony. Stick with Charles, your royal highness.
