Imagine a time in the future when the United States of America is sundered and there are now two countries where the one we love so dear used to be. The original United States is much reduced and only consists of the District of Columbia, the northeastern corridor, California, Florida, West Virginia, Washington and Hawaii. The remainder of the country, a large part of Canada and vassal countries overseas are components of a kingdom ruled by a succession of kings whose lineage goes back to roots in North Carolina. The new country is called America. It is a society divided into aristocrats, commoners and a labor class who are assigned their status on the basis of intelligence tests. The country is militant and maintains a huge standing army, always poised and ready to deliver retribution with an iron fist to anyone anywhere who threatens, injures or kills an American citizen. The Roman Catholic Church is the dominant religion in the kingdom and it is in charge of education in all of the king's countries and his empire. This novel explores the personal lives of the Royal family as they bring pageantry and glamour to the American heartland and the aristocrats who are wholehearted participants in this mighty drama. In 2084, in Baltimore, twenty-six year old King Henry meets a young woman who is destined for greatness. The story of their courtship and marriage brings romance and pageantry amid a background of international intrigue and war.
