Remember kids, if you are in line to the throne and your sibling asks you to join them on a hunting trip, just say no.

i cant imagine how cool would it be to know your family history stretching back almost 1000 years

I feel so bad for the children who were supposed to inherit the crown but "went mysteriously missing"

Everyone coming here today after the queen's death, and saying this needs an update, obviously didn't watch the last 10 seconds of the video. I think CGP Grey was planning ahead ;)

I’d love to see a “brief” history of the Japanese imperial family, one of the longest continuous royal lines in the world

Looking at the royal family tree laid out like this, it's really surprising how SHORT it is.

You know how complicated the royal family is, when you start half way through the tree and still end up with 9 minutes of names

All these “hunting mistakes” and the “unknown disappearance” got me dead 💀😂

It’s crazy how if even one of these particular events didn’t occur that the Queen of England right now would be someone else

It's easier to understand how the Electoral College works when a presidential tie is made than the Royal Family's history.

I love how there’s a total of like 10 different names over the course of 1000 years

Imagine knowing your family tree goes all the way back to 1066 and knowing the people and their names who came before you

I was dying at the "marrying a commoner" "an amarican" " a divorcee" a "two times divorcée" 😂😂 I can imagine the scandal back than ... I've been obsessed with the royal history I even named my daughter Elizabeth but this video was so short and simple and I understood everything better than hours of documentaries

It wasn't the stress of WW II or the breakup of the empire that killed George VI, it was the fact he was a very heavy smoker and in later life suffered bad health with several smoking-related illnesses, including lung cancer and arteriosclerosis. It no doubt contributed to his other ailments too, just as it did to his daughter Princess Margaret, who died, aged 71, who suffered from a number of conditions that are strongly correlated with smoking and suffered bad health for much of her life. Meanwhile her sister has now surpassed here age by a quarter of a century (and apparently insisted her husband gave up smoking when they married - and he almost made it to 100).
