The God-King Era of Great Britain

During the years A.D. 1846-1998, a cruel and totalitarian rule of Great Britain ensued, driving England into one of the first Fascist nations in Europe.

The Title

The 'God-King" Era is so dubbed, because the Kings (and Queens) in this Era took upon the names of ancient Greek, Roman and Egyptian Gods and mythological figures. Although the Kings made laws based on the Levitical Laws, they considered themselves natural Deities (i.e. Deities without supernatural origin).

Queen Alexandrina Victoria

Queen Victoria (Alexandrina Victoria) rose to the sovereign of Great Britain in 1837, and was the first Queen to affirm herself as the sovereign, even over the King. Victoria married a suitor shortly after in 1839 (unnamed due to his historical references being outlawed in 1921). In 1843, she is declared unable to bare children due to an unknown illness (it is widely believed to have been Leukaemia, which went into remission for a number of years). However, having vowed to be the primary sovereign of Great Britain, she immediately takes affirmative action, and makes one of the first royal public adoptions of the 14 year old, well-educated Thomas (the previous family name was stricken from historical record in 1921), whom then became the sole heir to the throne.

The Rise of King Adonai I

On the 18th of December, 1845, Victoria dies of a mysterious illness, similar in symptom to the illness that left her barren. Upon hearing of her death, her husband kills himself in a Church whilst praying for his wife's entrance into heaven. Thomas, in accordance with new laws passed by the British parliament and Victoria's will, was made King of Great Britain in 1846, at age 20. Calling himself King Adonai, the 20 year old King convinced not only the House of Lords, but the general public, that great changes for the better will come under his rule: "We shall be renowned throughout Europe, and the world will be etched with the Crown!" he proclaimed after his Crowning.

At the turn of 1847, he had called back much of Britain's Army, dubbing it "The Crown's Sword", and integrated the police into the Army as a single force. He gave them new laws to enforce based on the Old Testament Book of Leviticus. Particularly unique was the law against any unnecessary speaking outside the household on Sunday (related to the injunction to rest on the Sabbath). The Army, working as the police, had limited power, but still crime rates dropped with the larger amount of patrollers. It is believed these non-enforced laws were simply instated to render respect to the limitedly-abled police force. These laws were codified in 1850 as the "Extraordinary Laws".

The Turn of King Adonai I's Rule

After marrying Queen Hera I in 1854, a rapid change in the way King Adonai ruled his country emerged. He had won the good spirits of The Crown's Sword from the beginning of his rule, and over a year's time, used them to kill all the Parliamentarians of Britain, and declared himself (and his descendants) the ultimate sovereign of Britain, and all British Territory. From this point, he added punishment to his 'Extraordinary Laws', making their transgression result, in first offence, by torture through public stoning and banishment; and second offence, by death through any means deemed by The Crown's Sword or the King.

By 1856, King Adonai had decreased the 'Extraordinary Laws' (which prior to this numbered thirty-two laws) into five, generally stated laws, which he termed the Five Commandments:

"On this day, I, King Adonai, do entreat the peoples of my land, Great Britain, to follows these newly instated laws, that We should see them prosper under Our rule:
  1. It is prohibited by law to work on the Sunday of each week. This includes to perform domestic duties, to speak in public (unless there is good reason. proved in court), for women and children to leave the home, and for any machinery to be running in public.
  2. It is prohibited by law to use improperly the name of the King and Queen. This includes insulting the Royalty, their ancestors, or their family; references to the leaders of other nations as 'King', 'Queen', 'Prince', 'Princes', 'Majesty', or 'Royalty', and; the writing of the name of the King or Queen without the use of reverent print.
  3. It is prohibited by law to have any sexual relation without proper marriage. This includes fornication, adultery, the laying of man with another man in a common bed, and all sodomy.
  4. It is prohibited by law to wrong your fellow citizen. This includes stealing of any possession, bearing false witness to him, causing him harm, selling him a faulty object, lusting after his wife or children (be they not independent of him), or to lust after himself.
  5. It is prohibited by law to question the actions of The Crown's Sword, for it is the arm of Royal in the lives of the common.

Death and Succession

Having one male child, Adonai I felt it pertinent, as he wrote in his will, to commit suicide in an act of "Communion for the Land": an attempt to bless his nation with his death, in 1859. His son, born 1849, served as a figurehead for Queen Hera I, who kept the rule of Britain in the same manner as her husband. She died in 1865, at which time her 16 year old son took stead of Britain.

King Dionysus I

Given the crown at just 16 years of age, King Dionysus I proved to be more vicious than his father, King Adonai I.
