A little spoiler space: Did they ever explain how it could be that the Duke and Duchess could be parents of a potential royal heir without one of them also being a potential heir? Those systems (and the British isn't, at least on our world) that do not permit female rulership also do not permit descent through the female line. I would think that either Remmie would be King or Danielle would be Queen after the arson murders. -- One sharp pepper is better than a basketful of melons. -- Tractate Megillah 7A ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Debra Fran Baker dfbaker@panix.com

I don't know why she couldn't ascend the throne. Lynn

There are societies where inheritance, including royal position, are determined via matriarchal succession through the mother to the male. Without a more detailed run down of the history of Royal America it would not be possible to explain. In passing though, it should be remembered that succession via the female was not common on our own world. Elizabeth I was the first in the British line and no British Queen was ever succeeded by her off spring until this century, or just before. -- All That is Gold Does Not Glitter Not All Who Wnader Are Lost I.T.C.
