Storyboard Text

  • Babe, we're the British Nobility, we have the right to corrupt the elections. Now that I am in it, I have political power! Who can stop me, Aristocracy is a privilege.
  • Honey, how did you get into the House of Commons? Did you tell the Gen Family to give you a seat?
  • Great Britain (1739)
  • Hello Sir Mathew, I see you do not hold an office in Versailles like I do. Sorry to hear that bud, the court nobility is gaining so much wealth I can hardly keep track of the money gained!
  • Our wealth and ranks may be different, but you and me are still Aristocrats. You purchased your rank, I gained it by service!
  • France, Versaille (1787)
  • The people of Prussia, I am Frederick the Great. If you serve me as a Junker, I will increase your noble powers. You will rise, but I need your full support when I need it the most.
  • The accession of Frederick the Great will create a more powerful title for us Junkers. Let's maintain this traditional life forever!
  • Prussia (1740)
  • Woohoo! Go Junkers!
  • Ya!
  • Also, as nobles we can now own a big plot of land with our money. Many of the other Noble Families own like one fourth of all the land in Britain!
  • That is just perfect. I guess having power is not bad after all. The traditions of nobles is just getting better. Now we need a son, so he can sit on the House of Lords!
  • Great Britain (1739)
  • I guess you're right. But hey, look on the bright side... We don't even have to pay taxes! Taille and land tax is nothing but a mystery.
  • Ya! Let's keep this traditional way of life for the nobles until the end of time. We shall dominate, and let the peasants suffer.
  • France, Versaille (1787)
  • I hereby declare, to maintain the power of nobles, insert the Charter of Nobility. You are exempted from taxes, you have power over the serfs, and protection over your property. Only you must serve the state.
  • Prussia (1785)
  • The serfs will be ours!
  • Sounds like a plan!
