Here is what Wikipedia had to say: [The play] was an early Jacobean era masque, first performed at the Stuart Court in the Banqueting Hall of Whitehall Palace on Twelfth Night, 6 January 1605. The masque was written by Ben Jonson at the request of Anne of Denmark, the queen consort of King James I, who wished the masquers to be disguised as Africans. Anne was one of the performers in the masque along with her court ladies, and appeared in blackface makeup. The plot of the masque follows the ladies arriving at the English Court to be “cleansed” of their blackness by King James.
(Born 1540?-died 96): An English admiral and the most renowned seaman of the Elizabethan Age.
Drake, brought up by his wealthy Hawkins relatives ( John Hawkins) in Plymouth, Drake went to sea at about age 18. He gained a reputation as an outstanding navigator and became wealthy by raiding and plundering Spanish colonies. (Isn’t there other people know for the EXACT same thing? Raiding, Plundering, Pirating, I think they were called, Vikings.)
According to West Country folklore, Drake was a wizard— a notion possibly taken from the Spaniards, who believed in all seriousness that the Devil helped Drake in battle. The fact that his surname means ‘dragon’ added to his prestige. In the 1830s Devon people said he could turn chips of wood into fireships, draw a river from Dartmoor to Plymouth, and fire a cannonball straight through the earth from the Antipodes, to warn his wife that he was still alive and she must not remarry. This cannonball is still displayed at Combe Sydenham Hall; it is said always to return if shifted, and to roll about at times of national danger. Other tales are that he once built a barn with the Devil’s help, and that his ghost drives a hearse on stormy nights, drawn by headless horses and followed by headless hounds. The most famous Drake legend is a modern one concerning his drum, kept at Buckland Abbey.

He was the second son of Duke Albert II of Mecklenburg and Euphemia Eriksdotter, who was the daughter of Duke Erik Magnusson of Södermanland and the sister of King Magnus IV of Sweden.
In 1384 he inherited the title of Mecklenburg and united it with Sweden in a personal union. Albert based his claims on the Swedish crown upon two family ties with the Swedish House of Sverker (both through Albert’s mother), and through Kristina Sverkersdotter, a daughter of Sverker II of Sweden, also known as Sverker the Young. Sverker II had been the king of Sweden between 1196 and 1208.Seven-section coat of arms of

‘Allo there Britain. What’s that up your sleeve?…Oh what’s that, a Black King!
Henry II was born at Le Mans on 25 March 1133, the first day of the traditional year. His father, Geoffrey V of Anjou (Geoffrey Plantagenet), was Count of Anjou and Count of Maine. His mother, Empress Matilda, was a claimant to the English throne as the legitimate daughter of Henry I (1100–1135).
Through his father, he inherited the titles to lands in Western France. However it is through his mother Holy Roman Empress Matilda that Henry inherited the right to the English crown.
But then who is this?———->
Oh, I see. Its kind of the same person, just minus his brown skin. Why would they do that???

Usurped (Stolen) Lineage:The Introduction of the Feudal System
William I, usually known as William the Conqueror and sometimes as William the Bastard, was the first Norman King of England, reigning from 1066 until his death in 1087. Descended from Viking raiders, he had been Duke of Normandy since 1035 under the title of William II.
William was the son of the Robert I, Duke of Normandy, his mistress Herleva. His illegitimate status and his youth caused some difficulties for him after he succeeded his father.
The rest of his life was marked by struggles to consolidate his hold over England, lands and by difficulties with his eldest son.
William realizing that he couldn’t rule England by sheer force alone, established a system of “benefits” for those that helped him manage land. (this is very similar to the modern-day system many nations were build upon).
The system of control was called Feudal System.
Here is a quick break-down:
For the system to work, William had to find out who Owned what. So he sent his men* into towns and villages to survey that land. In 1086, this information was recorded and is what became known as The Domesday Book.
*Note: Many of those Mamluks (slave soldier), Serfs (Freemen**,Villeins, Slaves) that fought for the King , were granted those lands (except in the case of the Freeman). These slave soldiers were given titles of Nobility to collect taxes and oversee the land. Later these New Nobles further raised their position by wedding into Royal families(or bearing their children). Many of the True Royals where run off their lands, poisoned, or Killed; which left the land, heirless, and open for the Church to take and put into position those that would do their bidding.
**Freeman: A freeman became a serf usually through force or necessity. Sometimes freeholders, or allodial owners, were intimidated into dependency by physical and legal force. Often a few years of crop failure, a war, or brigandage might leave a person unable to make his own way. In such a case a bargain was struck with a lord of a manor. In exchange for “protection”, service was required, in cash, produce or labor, or a combination of all. These bargains were formalized in a ceremony known as “bondage”. (This is the same system used on the Original People of America, commonly misnomered Black or African-American. Those photos of people working fields were often times landowners, sharecroppers.)
Albert II Duke of Mecklenburg (c. 1318 – February 18, 1379) was a feudal lord in Northern Germany on the shores of the Baltic Sea. He reigned as the head of the House of Mecklenburg, his “princely” seat, located in Schwerin beginning in the 1350s. Duke Albert succeeded his father as reigning Prince (or Lord) of Mecklenburg in 1329. He was keenly interested in obtaining some power in Scandinavia, e.g. fiefs or income.
