So said Sirius Black about the beliefs of his parents, but, what if to be a Black actually made you royalty? In 1690, the Black Family Dynasty declared themselves rulers of the Magical Population of Great Britain and have reigned since then, with the support of the Ministry of Magic. Like many rulers, the family has faced a multitude of complications and threats to its rule over the hundreds of years it has reigned, but, it remains strong. Society operates as a Constitutional Monarchy. The Black Monarchs can only do so much as can the current Minister. The tussles for power and control have battled out through the years, yet somehow it has remained stable.
The year is now 1979. Whispers mingle the air foreshadowing the change that is on the way. King Orion Black I, sits on the throne after the tragic and suspicious circumstances surrounding the death of his father King Arcturus Black II in 1976. However, while he sits firm on the throne, the ship has began to rock. A recent surge of deaths has struck the family as well as the disownments of the previous Heir to the Throne Sirius Black and his cousin Bellatrix.
Opposition rages outside of the Monarchy. The Ministry of Magic is opposing the Monarchy even more especially under the rule of their new minister, Albus Dumbledore. Even more worrisome is the Death Eaters led by Lord Voldemort who is determined to seize power and create the society that the Monarchy has failed to craft.
Society has remained stable, but, as the foundations shake, one great push may have it tumbling over for good. For now, they remain content to rest on their line of succession that decrees that Prince Regulus Black will succeed his father, even as the rest in the line slowly drop dead around him. Perhaps, the person behind it wants someone else on the throne? Maybe they do not realise that the line of succession might soon be changed forever? Perhaps it might not even matter. After all, the power of the throne is limited.
Welcome to Crown and Country! A place where nothing is ever stagnant and the one with the crown is never really in control.
