The World's 26 Royal Families

Video Credit: John Oliver      Sent in by: ang

There are 26 monarchies who rule over 43 countries and in many cases rule with absolute power. After centuries of coupling most Royals in Europe are related in some way to the British Crown. John Oliver makes a very good argument that a one time Royals may have served a purpose, but that is no longer the case.
