Give the people what they want

I don’t have anything to post today, so I thought I’d write another entry about interesting search terms that have brought people to this blog, and provide links to the things they were seeking.

But there’s a problem. I can’t find some of these things, either!

Let’s start with one I do know:

the duchness relation to rolaty
Aha, I say wisely. This person wants to know about the connections between the 18th century’s Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire — subject of the Keira Knightley movie “The Duchess” — and the current British royal family. And as it happens, two modern princesses — Beatrice and Eugenie — are reportedly direct descendants of Georgiana.

Now for the ones I can’t answer:

Princess diana respectable mother and wife
The Charles/Diana fan wars are still raging on royalty forums, so you can find plenty of people to argue for or against this statement. Personally, I’m not getting involved.

joke “about a king”
Um… why did the king cross the road? To get to the other side! Well, OK, I admit that’s not a very good joke. If someone out there knows a better joke about a king, please share it in the comments.

“i was napoleon” song lyrics
I tried, but I can’t find a song like this. So instead here’s a 1911 recording of “I’m Henery The Eighth.” It’s not even about the real Henry VIII, but it will have to do.
