According To Your Answers, Could You Be A Member Of Aristocracy?
The term aristocracy is derived from the Greek ‘aristokratia’, meaning ‘the rule of the best’. Aristocrats are considered to be in the highest social class in a society and possess hereditary titles (Duke, Marquess, Earl, Viscount, Baron) granted by a monarch, which once granted them feudal or legal privileges. Within Henry VIII’s Tudor court the aristocracy abounded, reaching its ‘golden age’ in the 18th century and continuing into the ‘languid, be-plumed pomp’ of Queen Victoria’s heyday.

 The British aristocracy has had its share of colourful characters. “The 7th Baron Newborough (1917-1998) had his ashes fired from a cannon on his estate in North Wales in accordance with his will,” says Charles William Kidd, editor of Debrett’s Peerage & Baronetage. “Also, the 9th Baron Forester (1975-) has a licence dated from the reign of King Henry VIII which gave his ancestor the privilege of wearing his hat in the royal presence.”

Some people are progeny of aristocratic family, but this quiz is for all of us that didn't get that honor... P.S: Please don't be mad if your answer is NO.
