    Amazingly they surrendered a few times before WWII.

    Italians the same


    Neither living up to their Gallic or Roman roots.

      It was tested in UK courts in the 1960's but no final verdict was made as it has to go to the house of lords which it didn't at the time
      Since William of Orange (Charles II's successor after the short reign of James II) was Dutch, maybe we could root through a few more old papers and find the UK has sovereignty over Holland

          It would probably be the other way around. The Dutch king is still in line for the English throne (albeit at number 850)

            There must be the odd German relative of Victoria and Albert that are closer than that.
